Netflix Announces New Series On Colin Kaepernick’s Childhood

by | Jun 30, 2020 | Entertainment

The streaming service announced their new limited series titled “Colin in Black and White” will be based on Kaepernick‘s high school experiences. 

“The series will focus on Kaepernick’s formative high school years, lending meaningful insight into the acts and experiences that led him to become the activist he is today,” Netflix said in a statement. 

In 2016, Kaepernick made headlines by refusing to stand for the national anthem before NFL games. His decision was to honor the police shootings and social injustices of African American people in the United States. 

Emmy award winning director and producers Ava Duvernay and Michael Starrbury will unite for the series. The two previously worked together to produce the Netflix series “When They See Us”. 

Ava Duvernay celebrated the news on Twitter saying, “Colin’s story has much to say about identity, sports and the enduring spirit of protest and resilience. I couldn’t be happier than to tell this story with the team at Netflix.”

Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for the series.
