It was the summer of 2016, an election year with unrest rumbling through America.

Then, Colin Kaepernick took a knee and America lost its mind. Kaep’s knee touched down on the divide between America’s Black and white tectonic plates, creating an earthquake in the eternal race debate. The aftershocks of his singular gesture have already rippled through our country for years.

Kaepernick himself answered any and all thoughtful questions for a time, then stopped talking. And the resulting quiet has allowed for a thoughtful examination of the man and his story. Kaepernick & America examines the man and his protest, exploring the remarkable conflict stirred by such a symbolic gesture.
