THUMB ONLY: Ray Gaddis - Black History Month Fact Challenge

Awareness and education are at the core of Black History Month, and MLS players have taken to social media to increase understanding via the Black History Month Fact Challenge.

Philadelphia Union outside back Raymon Gaddis kicked things off last week with a video, then others joined in by using the hashtag #BHMFactChallenge.
