Why You Should Own One
United Black America represents the FUTURE of Black History! Your purchase supports a REAL movement that lives, loves, and represents Pan-Africanism!
Everything that we believe in is encoded in this lapel pin.
The single gold ring that surrounds the pin represents our mission which is to spread Black Consciousness, to fight white supremacy, and to support the establishment of a United States of Africa.
The 5 Black Stars on the pin represent our 5 values of Independence, Balance, Unity, Courage, and Knowledge. The Black stars also pay homage to Marcus Garvey’s Black Star Line – the greatest grass roots economic feat in modern times.
At the center, the continent of Africa represents our political philosophy of Pan-Africanism which is a belief in the laws and representation that benefit Africans in the Diaspora.
Behind Africa is the Red, Black, and Green banner that represents the flag of our people.
Red: The color of fire, aggression, and blood.
Red represents the blood of our martyrs, the 100 Million men and women who have given their lives for the cause of liberty, unification, and redemption.
Red compels us to remember the Oscar Grants, the Trayvon Martins, the Sean Bells, the Troy Davises alongside the Malcolm Xs, the Martin Luther King Jrs, the Huey P. Newtons, and the Denmark Veseys.
Red represents the passion and the aggression born within every Black man and woman, the life forces that must be tapped to release the collective energy that we will need to achieve our divine purpose on this planet.
Black: The color of the infinite, the mysterious, the unified, the definitive. The color of the most fertile soil from which all life springs forth, and to which all life must return.
Black represents the color of the Original people. It compels us to remember that we Black men and women are all unified as members of one family.
Black represents the uniformity of our intentions. Black also represents the ignorance – the void – from which we must emerge before we are able to lead and enlighten the rest of the world.
Green: The color of fertility, productivity, and prosperity.
Green represents the fertile cradle of Africa in all her prosperous glory. Green reminds us of our mission as Pan-Africanists; the unification of Africa into one mighty nation – protected, self-sustaining, and developed to her full potential.
