Colin Kaepernick series coming to Netflix from Ava DuVernay

A limited series on the high school years of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is coming to Netflix.

The six-episode series will focus on those formative years in his life and “[lend] meaningful insight into the acts and experiences that led him to become the activist he is today.” Filmmaker Ava DuVernay will team up with Kaepernick to create the limited scripted series Colin in Black & White. The QB will serve as the narrator.

“Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens,” Kaepernick said in a statement. “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.”
