Lilian Thurman is one of the most-capped players in the history of the French National Team. He is the winner of the World Cup Champion in 1998, European Champion in 2000, and Vice-Champion in 2006. In 2008, he created the Lilian Thuram Foundation, Education Against Racism using the idea of “there is only one race: the human race” as one of its most important cornerstones. The foundation jointly works with an extensive network of structures, associations and NGOs that continue to fight xenophobia and racism on a daily basis. It sponsors and monitors many educational anti-racism projects in the arts, sciences, culture and sports.
