Colin Kaepernick Writing Memoir On National Anthem Protest

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick is publishing a memoir this year. Kaepernick is self-publishing his own book though his new "Kaepernick Publishing" company because he is still "fighting the system".

Kap is teaming up with Audible to release an audio version of the memoir as well.

This discussion only heated up after both Tua Tagovailoa and Trevor Lawrence played a major hand in securing a national championship for their school during their first year playing college football, and after the former saw his junior campaign cut short this season after falling victim to a debilitating hip injury, plenty of people called for the NFL to rethink its current policy concerning when players are allowed to enter the league. His anthem protests became a huge source of debate back in 2016 and some people are still mad at him for peacefully protesting racism. In a recent interview, Kaepernick expressed a strong desire to get back into the NFL. The sides reached an undisclosed settlement. It instructs youths on understanding their rights, education and interacting with law enforcement.

"My protest was the culmination of years of thought and experiences, of learning and unlearning", Kaepernick said in the release. "I want to tell the story of my evolution, and the events that led me to protest systemic oppression, in hopes that it will inspire others to rise in action", the 32-year-old said in a statement, which notes Kaepernick promises to share "the life experiences that led him to risk his career as a star NFL Super Bowl quarterback in one silent act of protest".

Kaepernick may have had his best chance to get back into the NFL when the league gave the quarterback an opportunity to throw for teams in November.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick said at the time. That resulted in no job offers.

Additionally, Audible signed Kaepernick to a multi-project agreement to create audio projects "focused on amplifying the voices of notable authors, creators and other influential figures".
