Apple’s Diversity web page references the “Black@Apple” group under one of many features on this page. Information can be found by clicking the feature block “Community is the core of our culture.” Part of the feature reads:

“In the last year, we’ve grown our global communities more than 50 percent, including expansions in Apple Store locations and across all regions. More than 55,000 Apple employees belong to groups like Accessibility@Apple, AsianPacific@Apple, Beacon@Apple, Black@Apple, Familia@Apple, Indigenous@Apple, Pride@Apple, SouthAsian@Apple, Veterans@Apple, Women@Apple, and more.”

Employees are featured on another related page by following the link “Learn more about Apple DNAs >.” This link leads to the “Careers at Apple” website with the headline “I belong@Apple” where scrolling down the page introduces Apple employees who are identified as being part of various communities within Apple. These communities are referred to as “Diversity Network Associations.”

One feature identified Georgiana, an Apple employee part of Black@Apple—wearing this same T-shirt—and telling her story about some of the differences made by the Black@Apple Diversity Network Association:

“For years, different Black@Apple chapters had been doing their own smaller Juneteenth celebrations. Then, after our 2018 DNA Summit, we met with Apple leadership to share ideas for a more unified approach. Just a few weeks later, we saw one of those ideas come to life in time to celebrate… Juneteenth officially appeared in Calendar as a U.S. holiday—not just for Apple people, but for everyone…”

This t-shirt is size XL.

Black sport cap with multicolor Apple logo (c. 1990)

This black sport cap features a multicolor Apple logo embroidered on the front center. The cap is accented with a black rope across the front and an adjustable brown leather strap at the back with a gold-colored metal clip.

A tag inside the cap identifies the manufacturer and product as Sportcap SUPREME.

Black corduroy cap with multicolor Apple logo (c. 1990)

This black corduroy cap features a large multicolor Apple logo embroidered on the front center. The cap was manufactured by Cali-fame (Los Angeles, CA) and includes a plastic adjustable strap.

According to the Cali Fame website:

“Cali Fame of Los Angles began as ‘Chicago Hat Company,’ manufacturing dress, sport, military and athletic wear. The name was changed to “Cali Fame of Los Angeles” in 1946 when the company moved from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California.”

The company still exists and manufactures athletic wear.

T-shirt, Apple Music (black, c. 2019)

This black t-shirt features an Apple Music logo on the front with an Apple logo and the text-stylized word “MUSIC” (in an unknown, perhaps bespoke, font). The back of the shirt is printed at the top-center with a white Apple logo and the words “1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA” in Apple’s San Francisco font.

The shirt does not have a tag, but is printed with the size 2XL and “Made in China.” The size is stylized in the Apple Myriad font with a rounded-rectangle border, the same design used to indicate the storage size of various iPod and iPhone models. (It seems unusual that Apple has mixed the current San Francisco font on the back and the old Apple Myriad font on the tag of the same product.)

This t-shirt has not been worn. It was purchased from The Company Store, a store on the Apple Campus at 1 Infinite Loop that resembles an Apple Store, but includes Apple logo retail items such as t-shirts and mugs.

Long-sleeve pique polo, Apple Learning Interchange (tan, c. 2005)

This Apple Learning Interchange shirt features a unique style: it is a button-down pique polo with long sleeves, a front pocket, and a pique knit collar. It features three embroidered details—the words and URL “Apple Learning Interchange www.apple.com/ali” over the front pocket, the word “Author” on the left sleeve, and a black Apple logo on the top-center of the back. The shirt is tan and all embroidery is in black.

The Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) program and website are no longer active. Education World described ALI as “an Internet community for K-12 educators with a large and participatory membership. Apple has gathered databases of lesson-planning units, Internet resources, and Internet-based projects. Also included are discussion forums and chat rooms for educators.”

MacRumors reported that the Apple Learning Interchange shut down in 2010, quoting an inactive Apple link: “For years the Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) has served as an important resource for educators to access great education content, share best practices, and learn more about using technology in the context of teaching and learning. Over the last three years, iTunes U in the iTunes Store has grown to be an even larger education resource.”

The shirt is made by VANTAGE in Pakistan of 100% combed cotton. It is size 2X.

This shirt was worn by an Apple Distinguished Educator to educational technology conferences. During this time in the ADE program, members would frequently co-author educational content and present at conferences and other events.

Although I am a member of the Apple Distinguished Educator program (Class of 2007), this shirt predates my involvement in the program.

Polo shirt, white Apple logo (charcoal, c. 2010)

This polo-style shirt is charcoal (dark gray) and features a white Apple logo in the upper-left front. The back of the shirt includes no Apple markings.

The shirt was made by PORT|AUTHORITY in their SIGNATURE collection. It is a size L.

I purchased this shirt from the Apple Company Store at 1 Infinite Loop (Cupertino, CA) in approximately 2010.

Sweatshirt, i learn, therefore i am. (black, c. 2013)

This unusual black sweatshirt design features the phrase “i learn, therefore i am.” in white text centered on the front. I have seen no other Apple designs that use the lowercase “i,” presumably to echo the lowercase “i” in many Apple products, in this case, iTunes U. The back of the sweatshirt has a white Apple logo, and the brand iTunes U centered at the top.

Apple launched iTunes U in 2007. Apple describes iTunes U as “a dedicated area within the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com) featuring free content such as course lectures, language lessons, lab demonstrations, sports highlights and campus tours provided by top US colleges and universities including Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Duke University and MIT.”

According to Apple, they plan to discontinue iTunes U at the end of 2021.

This sweatshirt is made by American Apparel. Its tag indicates it was “Made in Downtown LA” and made in USA of 100% combed cotton.
