Spike Lee Colin Kaepernick Doc Set For ESPN
Spike Lee Colin Kaepernick’s documentary is set for ESPN. The multi-part doc will feature never before seen footage.
Spike Lee’s Colin Kaepernick Multi-Part Documentary Will Tell The Real Story
Spike Lee is directing a documentary on Colin Kaepernick, the free-agent NFL player turned civil rights activist.
The multi-part doc is to be featured on ESPN.
Included in the project are extensive interviews with the former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers.
34-year-old Kap is giving access to his personal archives.
ESPN Films made the announcement, sharing that Lee is revealing never-before-seen footage, providing “a full, first-person account of his journey.”
The last time we saw Colin on the field playing professionally in the NFL is the same year he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
That was in 2016, during his sixth season with the team.
Since he was let go from the team, he has yet to gain another professional contract.
Even though the NFL publicly says it encouraged teams to look at him.
A release date has yet to be set for this project.
However, you can be sure that Spike will do an excellent job.
Colin’s story is also featured in an outstanding series by Ava DuVernay on Netflix, ‘Colin In Black And White“.
