Nike Launches New Black History Month Collection

With sports comes a lot of hard work, sacrifice and determination. Not everyone is built for the game, but there are those individuals who spark encouragement and endurance as leaders on and off the playing field.

For this reason, and in a stylish way I might add, Nike, Inc. is introducing the 2015 Black History Month Collection that honors six athletes and coaches across basketball, football, running, soccer and skateboarding who have positively impacted the art and technique of sports with courage and determination.

The limited edition collection features 28 products designed with a black and white palette, fused with three different prints, ranging from performance gear to lifestyle for men and women.

Nike’s Black History Month Collection honors skateboarder, Theotis Beasley; soccer player Kevin-Prince Boateng; Football legend Jerry Rice; Track and field athlete Brianna Rollins; Legendary women’s basketball coach, C. Vivian Stringer and; Legendary Men’s Basketball coach, John Thompson.

A portion of the proceeds for the sale of the collection will benefit the Ever Higher Fund, a donor advised fund administered by the Charitable Aid Foundation of America, that “supports organizations that leverage the power of sport to maximize the potential of underserved youth.”

The full collection will be globally available on and in select retail stores, January 17.
