We’re back to the regular MLS season, NWSL is on a short break, and Loudoun United came up big on Saturday night (unfortunately, D.C. United did not).
Over the weekend, we commemorated Juneteenth and reflected on how much work is left to do toward achieving true equality. While the day has passed this year, it isn’t too late to educate ourselves on the importance of Juneteenth.
D.C. United shared a special interview with Donovan Pines and his father, Dr. Darryll J. Pines, as they discussed the holiday's significance.
