How Are Netflix and Ava Duvernay Telling Colin Kaepernick's Story?

Netflix announced yesterday a new series centered on former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, with acclaimed director Ava DuVernay of “When They See Us” producing. Kaepernick first gained notoriety in 2016 for kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality. “With his act of protest, Colin Kaepernick ignited a national conversation about race and justice with far-reaching consequences for football, culture and for him, personally,” DuVernay said in the statement.
