Monday, Netflix announced a new series that will take a look at Colin Kaepernick’s early years.

Kaepernick and award-winning filmmaker Ava Duvernay will team up for Colin in Black & White. The scripted six-episode series will dive deeper into Kaepernick’s early years as a black boy adopted into a white family, his transition into an NFL football star, and his work as a social justice activist.
