Just In; Inter Miami CF Celebrates Juneteenth Goalkeeper Drake Callender Inspires Youth with His New Children’s Book.

To mark Juneteenth, Inter Miami CF is thrilled to partner with star goalie Drake Callender on a significant community effort that truly embraces our Club’s motto, “Freedom to Dream.”


Callender led a special book reading for elementary school pupils at the Foundation of Community Assistance & Leadership (FOCAL) program on Monday. Callender read from his own children’s book, which he co-authored with former teammate DeAndre Yedlin and included pictures by Aude Brisson. The children’s book X Marks the Spot is about an African American boy named X and the significance of being aware of oneself and your environment.


Drake captivated the young kids with his reading, weaving the significance of Juneteenth into his narrative. Drake and his wife Kyra toured the school as part of the program, engaging and answering questions from the actively interacting children.


“This Juneteenth, I was able to give back to the next generation. “Having a vision for the future is critical to our community’s growth,” said Drake. “With this in mind, I chose to read a novel to local children at Focal Community Center’s annual summer camp in Miami.
