The limited series will be narrated by Kaepernick and centers around his high school years as a Black child adopted into a white family. The project promises “meaningful insight” into the formative experiences that later inspired the athlete to become a social justice activist.

Via Variety:

“Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens. We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that Black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted Black man in a white community, during my high school years. It’s an honor to bring these stories to life in collaboration with Ava for the world to see.”

Kaepernick claimed he was blackballed by the NFL because he kneeled during the 2016 season to bring awareness to the issues of racism and police brutality.

He filed a grievance in August 2017 for collusion and the case was settled last year.
