A Black Lives Matter shirt stylized in the font of Black Sabbath‘s 1971 album “Masters Of Reality” gained popularity online a week ago after being seen worn by Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello on his social media. The image even made its way back to Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, who commented directly on the post: “Nice shirt & nice sentiment & awesome mum”.

Soon after, various bootleggers took to cashing on the unofficial shirt design, some of whom were pocketing the proceeds. Now Black Sabbath themselves have launched an official version of the shirt, ensuring that 100% of their net proceeds from the shirt will go towards Black Lives Matter. You can order the shirt here.

My 96 yr old mom has been a tireless advocate for Black Lives her whole life. From being a foreign student advisor at the Univ. of Illinois, to teaching in Kenya and supporting the anti-colonial movement there, to teaching African Studies and bringing a radical perspective to a white conservative high school for 30 yrs, to being a member of the Illinois Urban League and campaigning for civil rights, to helping homeless African American men get their GED at the Salvation Army, to telling anybody who came at our family with any racist garbage to go straight to hell, to arming me with pride & confidence, to being a lifelong proponent of racial justice and ruthless critic of racist police. Proud to stand with her today, as always, in solidarity in the fight for a more just and humane country & planet. (Photo by Rhoads Morello)
