    Kevin Durant:
    Black Consciousness & Perspective

    KD’s journey to wellness is guided by consciousness, perspective and vulnerability, which he learned from the game of basketball and the places it has taken him. ‘Black Consciousness’ is a way of life for Black people who see their value and progression towards holistic liberation, which KD embodies through his many endeavors, including philanthropy through the Durant Family Foundation.

    Equity In Well-Being

    KD’s greatness is matched only by his humility, reflecting that he is only “one of 8 billion.” Like most, KD must work to pursue his wellness, both mentally and physically, in order to be of service and help push society forward towards equity. He hopes that other Black athletes* feel empowered to prioritize their overall health so that they can also support their community’s well-being.
