It’s officially Black History Month, and we can pretty much all agree that it’s about to be lit!

The NBA has officially kicked off BHM with warm-up shirts full of words chosen by players that celebrate diversity and equality. The words chosen are:

Unity
Perseverance
Activate
History
Believe
Dream
Empower
Engage
Equality
Inspire
Justice
Lead
Listen
Love

The shirts, as a part of Nike’s Equality collection, available for purchase on NBA.com, proceeds will be donated to MENTOR. According to the organization’s website, MENTOR’s mission is to fuel the quantity and quality of mentoring relationships for America’s young people and to close the mentoring gap.

With well over 70% of the league comprising of black players, this is a positive move and we look forward to seeing more efforts like this moving forward.
