Netflix unveils trailer for Kaepernick origin story, which debuts Halloween weekend

Bay Area football fans already know quite a bit about Colin Kaepernick’s journey from sensational quarterback to social justice icon.

Now, Kaepernick and director Ava Duvernay share the former 49th star’s take on his upbringing in the six-episode, scripted limited series, which will debut later this month on Netflix.

Colin in Black and White recounts Kapernick’s youth as a budding football talent, as Turlock struggles for his place in the world as a black child adopted by white parents.

“I didn’t have a lot of links or guides to help me navigate some of the negative experiences or interactions I went through as a young black child,” Kapernik said in a press release. “When we thought about telling this story, we wanted to explore this idea more and give people guidance on how these situations can influence and shape personality and growth.”

Kapernik himself recounts excerpts from the show, while his younger version is portrayed by Jaden Michael (“Wonderstruck,” “The Get Down”). The character sees his way on the football field and in the world, where he is treated differently because he is black.

DuVernet has extensive experience in the justice sector – she directed the films Selma and the 13th and created the Netflix miniseries When We Are Seen. She and Kaepernick first met in 2017, the quarterback’s first year without an NFL contract after he spoke out against police violence and racial injustice by kneeling down while singing the national anthem before a game.
