Zion Rootswear has partnered with GreenLight and The Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr. Inc. to carry on Dr. King’s legacy and create officially licensed apparel.

“We are pleased to have signed Zion Rootswear as an apparel partner. Their dedication to Dr. King’s legacy is obvious in their designs and we are looking forward to a successful partnership,” said Stephen Rubino, CEO and President of The Martin Luther King, Jr. Estate.

“The world has embraced Dr. King's legacy as a gifted activist, orator and positive figure who stood for peace, nonviolence and equality, and we are honored that the Martin Luther King, Jr. Estate chose Zion Rootswear to create and license Dr. King apparel,” said Brian Conley, president of Zion Rootswear. “Our goal was to develop t-shirts that celebrate Dr. King’s life and legacy through artistic, fashion-forward designs that promote his teachings.”

In addition to Martin Luther King, Jr., Zion Rootswear successfully produces officially licensed merchandise for iconic figures such as, Bob Marley and the Marley Family, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead and more.

Zion Rootswear will launch with fashionable t-shirts for men and women, but consumers can expect more merchandise to be released in the near future. The first wave of t-shirts will vary in style and cut, ranging from V-necks, to crew necks, screen printed tees to pop art influenced designs and many more.

Zion Rootswear is a proven leader in the entertainment merchandising industry. Being a key distributor of officially licensed clothing from the estates of Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia and more, Zion Rootswear has made its mark in the ultra competitive merchandising industry.
