It's Black History Month during October and as our England Women's squad meet up ahead of their game with Germany, we asked some of the Lionesses to recommend some powerful watching or people to follow.
Leah Williamson, Lucy Bronze, Nikita Parris and Jodie Taylor all picked a film or figure who they've found inspirational in raising awareness of equality and diversity and you can read who and what they picked and why...
Watch: Dear White People (2017).
"It's a comedy-drama that follows a group of Black students as they start university. A lot of shows look back historically but this one explores modern day examples of racism in situations we all know and recognise, which makes it a really thought-provoking watch."
Watch: The Death and Life of Marsha P Johnson (2017).
"Unreal. Marsha fought to the death for gay liberation and to better the lives of others. Her name needs to be known and have the respect it deserves."
Watch: Hidden Figures (2016).
"These women played such a pivotal role in such a historic moment and yet I didn't know anything about them. This is why Black History Month is so important. We need to educate ourselves about these hidden figures."
Follow: Rachel Cargle
"Rachel Cargle is a writer, author, speaker and activist. I've followed her work closely this past year. She's provided a platform for many Black women and amplified the voices of many, especially through the BLM movement. I've learned a ton from following her work."
