Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

Documentarians Ross Hockrow and Tommy Walker investigate the civil rights activism of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick first garnered national attention in 2016 for silently protesting during the NFL games as a reaction to the police brutality unfolding across the United States. Yet Kaepernick's actions spurred divisive reactions across the country, creating a social commentary on the nature of protest and the true meaning of freedom of expression. Featuring perspectives from Nate Boyer, Don Lemon, and April Dinwoodie.
