In honor of February being Black History Month, Philadelphia Union and veteran defender Ray Gaddis launched the #BHMChallenge. With Black History being part of the United States' history, the challenge is to share a Black history fact that will educate and enhance appreciation for Black culture.
After Gaddis started the challenge, it continues to spread as you can see from some of the videos submitted below.
