This paper explores the value of decolonising the curriculum and implementing anti-racist pedagogy within sports and leisure education. The research seeks to add to ambitions for social justice within higher education (HE) in the Global North by contributing to the growing interest in and action towards anti-racist pedagogy and decolonising the curriculum. Anti-racist pedagogy seeks to educate about race and racism in a way that develops critical analytical skills and illuminates uneven power relations that contribute towards systemic racial violence. In so doing, this method of pedagogy seeks to help Decolonise the HE curriculum by diversifying reading lists, critiquing Eurocentric epistemologies and ontologies, and disrupting hegemonic Whiteness. Findings from the research will demonstrate how anti-racist pedagogy can help those who fear being racially stereotyped express their experiences of racism. Explain how educating students about discursive practices such as ‘othering’ can make racism and racist acts more visible and expose the importance of teaching undergraduates about inclusion and diversity to influence their workplace practices.
