The Atlanta Hawks' new alternate jerseys pay tribute to one of Atlanta's most famous sons - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The black, gold, and white jerseys are emblazoned with 'MLK' on the front and Dr. King's signature at the bottom.

The jerseys will make their debut next season. Proceeds from jersey sales will go to "economic empowerment programs for Atlanta's communities of color".

MLK was born and raised in Atlanta and graduated from Atlanta's Morehouse College in 1948.
