Netflix has announced Colin in Black & White, a new scripted six-part series created by Colin Kaepernick and Ava DuVernay.
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.
“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.”- Colin Kaepernick
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.
