Black History Month 2020: Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford is an English professional footballer who used his platform to call for MPs to go further in tackling child food poverty. The Manchester United forward successfully campaigned to extend free school meals this summer, prompting a government U-turn on the issue. As well as changing government policy, Marcus also succeeded in putting the issue of food poverty into the national consciousness and consequently reduced the stigma attached to receiving free school meals.
