A fictionalised account of the life of Walter ‘Tully’ Tull, a hero – on the football field and on the battlefield. His grandparents had been slaves and after his parents died, Walter and his brother Eddie were brought up in a children’s home.
Read about how Walter, or Tully as he was known, became popular and famous because he was brave and fair and because he could play football better than almost anyone.
A lovely story showing us a bit of what life was like before World War One broke out and what it was like to be black and living in England back then.
