Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Zeli Ismail joined Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) at Molineux this afternoon to teach young people about the dangers of racism.
The two Academy graduates were in attendance,along with around 65 pupils from St Michael’s and Elston Hall Primary Schools,who took part in a range of anti-racism activities, saw a screening of the SRtRC film and posed questions to both players.
Questions included whether the players had been on the end of any racist abuse and the best course of action to take in those situations.
Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card, Ged Grebby, said: “SRtRC are pleased to again be working with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Wolves Community Trust on this educational event.
“Both the club and the Trust have been consistent supporters of the campaign and hold an event with the campaign annually.
“It gives the opportunity for young people to hear positive messages from role-models and that has a great impact on how young people think about racism.
“Coupled with the educational activities, which encouraged critical thinking skills, it was an excellent event.”
Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism educational charity, founded in 1996, that uses the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society.
The campaign's primary output is the education given to young people and adults in their schools, workplaces and at events held in football stadiums around Britain.
Show Racism the Red Card works comprehensively across Great Britain and each season, SRtRC visits clubs in all four divisions in England to host educational events with local school pupils and professional footballers, ex-professionals, managers, coaches and high-profile members of the community.
