The Black Unity Sport Band has “Truth,” motivated by the call to action of both the historic and current movements. Electricity. Solidarity. laser-engraved on the fastening pin of stainless steel inside.

The Black Unity Series pays tribute to the Black community’s rich heritage and art of quilting and honors the color of the Pan-African flag: red for the blood that unites the people of the African Diaspora and was shed for their liberation, black for the people whose flag affirms their life, and green for the vivid natural resources of the Motherland of Africa.
