Join the discussion on race and inequality with our Time For Change debate including boxing champ Anthony Joshua

RACE and inequality have dominated the national conversation in recent weeks – and now we want YOU to join the discussion.

In the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests in the US which quickly spread across the UK, The Sun is hosting our Time For Change panel debate to tackle the issues surrounding discrimination.

Bringing together a range of voices from across the spectrum, our panel will feature heavyweight boxing champ Anthony Joshua and education reformer Katharine Birbalsingh.

It will be hosted by talkSPORT’s Hugh ­Woozencroft and broadcast on talkSPORT, talkRADIO and across all of the Sun’s platforms.

Anthony said tonight: “This is a great ­opportunity to listen and discuss the future, ­especially for young people in Britain, and help bring about lasting change.”

Head teacher Katharine said: “I am really excited to be part of this discussion.

“Talking about these issues is how we develop our thinking and how we can make the world a better place, which is what teaching is all about.

“Racism and how to increase opportunities for black and Asian people and ethnic minorities has become a national talking point.

“It’s crucial to build on that now in order to discuss how we can bring about real, lasting change.

“As a panel, we come from different backgrounds and sectors but we all share a desire to create a more equal society.

“Young people are key to ­building a future where they have equality of opportunity and a chance to thrive.

“In schools, we listen, talk and share our ideas and opinions. That’s exactly what we need to do now as a wider community.

“I am looking forward to hearing questions from Sun readers.”

TalkSPORT presenter Hugh will chair the discussion and put YOUR questions to our panellists.

He said: “We hope that by opening more dialogue, we can open more minds to the issues that people face in this country.

“Across sectors there are real issues with racial discrimination.

“To not admit them would be denial and to not discuss them would stop us progressing. I’m happy to be part of that evolution.”

The debate will address subjects from policing and justice to education, representation in business and the media, and kicking racism out of sport.

How do we boost education outcomes? Do we need legal reform? What role can sport play in tackling racism?
