Black Unity is a composition and album by jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, recorded and released in late 1971.

The whole album consists of a single thirty-seven-minute track, which was described by critic Joe S. Harrington as "an exercise in sustained harmonic groove that cannot be beaten"[2] when he listed it at #38 on his Top 100 Albums.
