New, 27 comments

We need some education, amplification, and uplift.

I’ll be honest, I don’t have a lot in me right now. The events of the past week, month, year, decade, lifetime have me along with other Black Americans in a not-so-good spot. The mental exhaustion has reached the point of no return, and the United States of America hasn’t done much to make us feel great lately.

So, when my mental health reaches the ultimate breaking point due to what’s going on in the world, it’s a good time to pick up a book. So today, I ask you to discuss which soccer books that you recommend as good reads for us all.

They can deal with U.S. Soccer, MLS, your favorite club, or a team or event that is something you want to learn about for educational growth. Also, in the interest of #BlackoutTuesday, which occurred yesterday, which stories did you want to learn about black players in this country and around the world? Which books do you think will take you out of your comfort zone and force you to confront realities that for too long have been pushed aside? Let us know that too.

Let the self-education begin. Hit the comments to get the conversation started.
