Different Class: The Story of Laurie Cunningham- Book Launch

Housmans Bookshop, 5, Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London

Author Dermot Kavanagh hosts an illustrated talk on the life of Laurie Cunningham: footballer, dancer and dandy. With video footage of Laurie in action followed by a Q&A and signing. Cunningham blazed a trail for black footballers at a time when racism was rife on the terraces and won over hostile crowds with his mercurial style. A glamorous outsider, he was also a soul boy who danced on the 1970’s Soho funk scene in bespoke suits. ‘Different Class’ follows his remarkable journey from the streets of Finsbury Park to the world’s most famous football club, Real Madrid. Cunningham’s story is not only a football one, it is a story of London, race relations and youth culture too. Time: 7pm. More information and tickets here.
