This T-shirt is part of a series where Union has collaborated with 3 brands to produce some special, socially conscious products. The collaborative is called "The Return" and its intentions are to reminisce back to a more conscious times where we were constantly speaking up for ourselves and against social injustices. The racially unjust events of this past year have spawned a new energy to "fight the power" so to speak. All proceeds from the sales of these shirts are being donated to charity. Thanks to PNB, TooBlackGuys and GRQ$.
When this tee was conceived, over twenty years ago, Midnight Marauders
was on rotation, LA was rebuilding after the riots, and 80% of the NBA
was made up of Black players which was at an all-time high. Conversely
the white player count was at its lowest number. Despite this new era
in pro ball the logo then, and to this day, features the silhouette of
Hall of Famer Jerry West, harking back to a older, Whiter league.
Inspired by this irony, as well as the spirit of the culture and
times, PNB Nation chose to "update" the logo. By simply appropriating
the logo silhouette with a Dr J style Afro and changing the colors
from Old Glory to the Black Liberation flag, PNB began building and as
a final touch added the bold black on black Proud Nubian Brothers to
this iconic tee.
