Black History

The Dallas Mavericks honor the legacy and contributions of Black leaders from history and take collective actions in the present to demonstrate our commitment of building a more just, equal, and inclusive future.


To honor Black History and inspire future change makers, the Dallas Mavericks encouraged 8th-12th grade student’s to create a visual medium that interprets the beliefs of past and present black leaders and how they inspired others to unite and join hands for justice.
