Back in 2019, we received word that a limited series was going to be curated to show an inside look at Colin Kaepernick’s early life growing up. The new series titled, Colin In Black & White was created by Emmy award-winner, Ava Duvernay and Kaepernick himself.

The six-episode series, Colin In Black & White focuses on Kaepernick’s journey in high school and the experiences he has endured in order to become the activist he is today.

Michael Starrbury wrote this project and served as executive producer while Colin Kaepernick narrates the series.

In a statement, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix, Cindy Holland stated, “We’re proud to bring Colin’s experience and his creative vision to life as he joins Ava to share his powerful story and message with all our members around the world.”

She added, “It is an unparalleled union of two strong and defining voices coming together to tell the story about what it’s like to be Black in America.”
