Home HISTORY- Collaborations Brooklyn NETS

The Brooklyn Nets celebrated Black History Month during each of the team's five home games at Barclays Center in February 2022 by honoring the legacy and impact of Black pioneers across a range of industries. Black pioneers of the past, present, and future will be highlighted to show that Black history is not only something of the past, but that the next generation of Black leaders are creating history in real time. A huge influence in creating that history are Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), which are celebrated in the programming. One of the Nets' Black History Month merchandise collections – a collaboration with Legacy History Pride – also debuted at and sold exclusively at Brooklyn Fanatics. Legacy History Pride was founded on the vision of fulfilling the dream of a legacy, the history of family spirit and the pride of Black culture. Tahir Murray, the brand's founder was born in New York, has family ties to Brooklyn and is a graduate of Howard University.

"We're celebrating pioneers from the past, present, and future," says Jackie Wilson II, the Nets' chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer. "Black history isn't just something of the past but something that's being created in real time. We're trying to show people in the community folks who look like them who are operating in business. It's important that people see themselves in those leaders."
