On the latest episode of the US Soccer podcast, US men's national team legend DaMarcus Beasley stopped in for an interview with hosts Charlie Davies and Jordan Angeli to discuss the significance of Black History Month.

In the interview, Beasley talks about his own family history, learning that his own ancestors were slaves and the discussions he's had about the struggles they went through with his elder relatives. You can see a clip from the interview below and listen to the full episode here.

Beasley is one of the most decorated players in US Soccer history, with the distinction of being the only US player to feature in four World Cups and is one of 17 USMNT players to reach 100 caps. The interview also delves into a variety of additional topics, including the U-17 USMNT side that finished fourth at the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Cup, and playing at the US Soccer residency in Bradenton, Florida alongside Landon Donovan, Oguchi Onyewu and Kyle Beckerman.
