Why is it called Day of the Nines?
The number 9 is very important to Black Men Build. It symbolizes completion (in numerology), as it’s the last of the single-digit numbers and the highest in value. It symbolically represents a culmination of wisdom and experience and buzzes with the energy of both endings and new beginnings. It is also the number of bars in the Black Men Build logo.
