A couple of weeks ago, we retold some of the international Black soccer history stories that were among our favorites on the SSFC Podcast. On Episode 98, we bring you the American stories that we’ve done for Black History Month that were among our favorites.

This week, we have 8 stories that we briefly discuss and why the stories were important to tell:

Again, there are many other stories that are worth sharing, and we encourage you to read them all. As we move towards the end of Black History Month, we’ll continue to bring new stories while resharing others that we’ve done over the years.

Hit the comments and let us know the Black American soccer stories you’ve enjoyed the most over the years or some of the stories or players that you would love to see covered in a future article.
