With all the media attention about the #TakeAKnee movement, the underlying reasons for the protest get lost. OneUnited Bank supports the #TakeAKnee movement because, as the art showcases, these men recognize the Black community is in distress. The fight for freedom and justice is being carried on their back, as it has historically been carried by many activist athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Tommie Smith and John Carlos.


These athletes #TakeAKnee in protest against police shootings of unarmed Black people, mass incarceration, income inequality, voter suppression and overall injustice. Throughout history, art has been used to raise awareness about social issues and affect positive change. We are honored to unveil “Last Man Standing” and our Take A Knee Campaign taking the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack Movement to the next level.

    I am so proud to know that One United Bank has created the card #TakeAKnee movement. It's very important to know that this matter is a real situation in our society and we must continue to bring attention to this situation; because "BlackLivesMatters" and we do have a voice and will proclaim it until justice prevail for our those who lost their lives to police brutality and our prayers to their family members on their loss.
