NFL Announces They’ll Play ‘Black National Anthem’ Before Games, But Here’s What Jemele Hill and BLM Co-Founder Want

The Associated Press reported last night that they had been informed by a source within the NFL that “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” sometimes referred to as the ‘black national anthem,’ will be performed before “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to each NFL game during Week 1 games.

On top of that, the league said they were considering doing something further to recognize the victims of police brutality, such as having their names on helmet decals or patches on people’s jerseys.

From AP:


The person said the league is working collaboratively with players to recognize victims of systemic racism throughout the season in a variety of ways. The person spoke to the AP on Thursday on condition of anonymity because discussions between the league and the NFL Players Association are ongoing.

Additional plans include the use of educational programs and storytelling about the victims and their families similar to the league’s PSA on Botham Jean released in January and the Super Bowl commercial on Corey Jones featuring his cousin, former NFL star Anquan Boldin.

This is on top of what they’ve already said about committing $250 million to combat “systemic racism.”
