Throughout Black History Month the Club are running a series of workshops at White Hart Lane as part of the work Tottenham Hotspur and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will be implementing for Kick It Out's 'One Game One Community' week of action and for the duration of October.

The Foundation will be working with local schools in the borough, including children form the Northumberland Park Community School in Haringey as pictured, in order to use football and White Hart Lane as part of the education and learning programme during Black History Month.

The Spurs Learning Zone, located at White Hart Lane, will host the workshops, which will focus on education programmes based around the history of black footballers, including the country's first black outfield footballer Walter Tull who first signed for the Club 100 years ago and played for Spurs from 1909-11.
