Emma Clarke Female Footballer Pioneer Plaque Unveiling

This mini documentary celebrates the blue plaque unveiling of Emma Clarke, a pioneering female British footballer who was very prolific during the late1800s. She is also the first known black female footballer and had to overcome both sexism and racism during a period where neither was challenged in the UK. The plaque unveiling took place on the 4th of December at Campsbourne primary school in North London and featured girl football teams from various schools competing for the Emma Clarke Award.
