Nike Black History Month 2009 Air Force 1

With Black History Month approaching Nike will continue its tradition of producing a AF1 signifying the important and preservation of Black History Month. Never released for retail these are produced and given to those within the community making waves and leading the acknowledgement of the Black History.

This years edition features this thoughtful and powerful quote as its hangtag:

100 years came and another 100 past
little did they know, nothing would forever last
the land they knew stood for “liberty and justice for all”
however, “we the people” didn’t include them at all
words on paper held no weight
it was time for judicial battle at the mahogany gate
they moved left and then shifted right
they fought for freedom keeping equality in sight
laws were challenged and changes were made
giving us the right to make the grade
thanks to those who fought the fight
moving the darkness and bringing light.
