41. To include the women...
the first black female pro soccer player I could find was Briana Scurry. One of the founding members of the WUSA, she was starting goalkeeper for the women's World Cup team in 1995 and 1999 and she was the starting goalkeeper for the women's Olympic team in 1996. She played for the WUSA team Atlanta Beat from 2001-2003, when the league folded.

In my survey of W-League women's team rosters, i.e., the team home pages that actually had photo rosters, the teams that actually have black players, they tended to come from outside of the US, much like the early days of men's soccer in the 20th century.
