Description

With the murders of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling and the rise of the Black Lives Matter, summer 2016 found America primed for implosion or revolution. When quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem, it struck a pivotal nerve with the American populace. Kaepernick & America examines the upbringing of the enigmatic athlete-turned icon, how the fateful protest came to be and how his quiet act became one of the most recognized political statements of our time. Director Tommy Walker in person.
