Description

For the second straight year, Alife® celebrates Black History Month by releasing a series of six hoodies. Each hoodie features the names of prominent Black men and women that were pivotal to promoting African American civil rights, culture, and values in the United States. 

The names, prominently displayed on the front of the hoodies, include Eldridge Cleaver, W.E.B. Du Bois, Medgar Evers, Fred Hampton, Assata Shakur, and Nina Simone. The straightforward design and bold font on the hoodies aims to draw attention to the power of the figures’ names and the movements that they championed. 

Medgar Evers, born in Decatur, Mississippi, was a civil rights activist and the Mississippi state field secretary for the NAACP. After serving in the second World War, Evers worked to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi, segregation of public facilities, as well as working to expand the opportunities of African Americans. In 1963, Evers was assassinated by a member of the White Citizens Council in Jackson, Mississippi, which was a group formed to resist integration. Evers legacy manifested in numerous ways, like his widow, Myrlie Evers, becoming a noted activist and serving as the nation chair of the NAACP. His brother, Charles Evers, was the first African American to be elected as mayor of a city in Mississippi.

The heather grey hooded sweatshirts are all made of a heavyweight, pre-shrunk 14 oz fleece, with the name screen printed on the chest, and ribbed cuffs and sides.

5% of proceeds from all Alife® sales from the month of February will go towards United Negro College Fund and Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
