Dorian Lynskey

Dorian Lynskey writes about music for the Guardian & Q amongst other publications. He is also the author of an excellent book on the history of protest songs; '33 Revolutions Per Minute: A History of Protest Songs' and The Guardian Book of Playlists.

“Having written extensively about the power of music to build bridges and change minds, I believe the same is true of sport. At its best it has the same combination of inspiring individuals and communal energy. Recently I’ve been spurred into writing about racism on my 33 Revolutions Per Minute blog by news stories which have reminded me that there’s still a long way to go. I celebrate Show Racism the Red Card for continuing to do that vital work.”
