HeLLo, My Name is KING Day
Once you know who you are, you don't have to worry anymore.

HELLO, MY NAME IS KING DAY?
WANT TO JOIN THE MOVEMENT?
Reclaim Your Name!
Hello, My Name is KING DAY seeks to ensure that every boy and man of color understands that he is a king and has the resources to walk in that right. While there are many influential Black men, there are few positive images to reflect their efforts. The beauty, talent, value, and humanness of Black men are buried from the world and themselves. Hello, My Name is King challenges public perceptions and encourages supporters to break barriers, publicly value themselves, and make a difference in their communities. It is our vision that Black men will not succumb to negative labels but harness their power to create greatness in themselves, their families, and society.
Joining is Easy!
Here's how in 3 simple step!
Wear your HMNK button, shirt, or other swag. If you don't have any merch, head over to the HMNK Shop to get some today. In the meantime, any other black excellence apparel will do.
Complete an act of service to improve the lives of Black Americans (i.e. volunteering at voting polls, donate, mentor, buy from a Black business, etc).
Spread the word! Share your experience with your network on social media! Encourage others to join and share posts about the kings in their life!
