The National Football League (NFL) said it would be playing the “Black National Anthem” as “a prominent part of all big-league events."

The events the anthem will be played include the Super Bowl, NFL Playoffs, NFL Draft, and NFL Kickoff games.

During the first week of the 2020 season, the NFL played the anthem, “Lift Every Voice And Sing."

Alicia Keys and the Cleveland All-City Choir singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” was also featured before Super Bowl LV and even before the 2021 NFL Draft.

The NFL “will introduce more social justice messaging on fields and player helmets during the upcoming 2021 season, following up on initial efforts from 2020," Front Office Sports reported.

“To reinforce its 10-year, $250 million commitment to combat systemic racism, the league will promote social justice via on-field signage, decals on player helmets, and in-stadium PSAs,” the FOS report explains.

“The NFL also plans to make ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ — often referred to as the Black national anthem — a prominent part of all big-league events, said sources."

"They will likely highlight victims of racial injustice with a ‘Say Their Stories’ project, as well.”

WATCH:

Preseason NFL end zones will also include messages such as “End Racism” and “Inspire Change.”

The league is being advised by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation on the “Inspire Change” initiative.

“Average audiences fell 8% to 15.1 million viewers in 2020 as the league embraced social justice messaging on helmets, warm-up gear, fields, and stadiums … The NFL lost $4 billion last year,” Front Office Sports noted.

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” will be performed before the NFL Kickoff game between Tom Brady’s Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dak Prescott’s Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Sept. 9.”
