The Minnesota Vikings are highlighting Black History Month all through February on the team's website, with interviews featuring several Vikings players sharing their insights about what Black History Month means for them.
One of the most insightful commentaries comes from former Vikings punter Greg Coleman, who was with the team from 1978-'87.
Coleman shared his memories of growing up in Florida during the 1960s, at the height of the civil rights movement.
"I remember the day of [Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's] assassination. I remember the march on Selma as a young child," said Coleman in the video. "I remember whites-only drinking fountains. And knowing me and my inquisitive mind, I wanted to drink out of it to see if there was any difference."
But it's a specific memory of his youth football days that really sticks with Coleman, which he describes in this video clip.

Today, Coleman works on the Vikings radio broadcast team and is an ordained minister, who has served as an associated pastor in the Twin Cities for several years.
Each day throughout the month, new videos will be posted on Vikings.com/bhm featuring stories from other team members.
