The former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick agreed with Walt Disney for the production of a documentary series that will be produced by the network ESPN.
“The partnership will focus on the narration of stories scripted and unscripted, which explore race, social injustice, and the quest of fairness,” wrote the company in a press release, adding that it would give a platform for designers from minority backgrounds.
“I am excited about this historic partnership with Disney on all of its platforms to bring before the directors, creators, storytellers, and producers in black, has said Kaepernick. This will also inspire young people with prospects in compelling and authentic. I look forward to sharing the documentary series on my life story, in addition to numerous other projects, impact on the cultural plan that we are developing.”
This is a second covenant in the same style to Kaepernick. At the end of the month of June, Netflix announced it would produce a series of six episodes on his life.
The athlete has marked the spirits in 2016 when he is sitting, and then knelt in the interpretation of the national anthem of the United States before the NFL games to protest against police violence against Blacks.
