Trailer: Ava DuVernay’s ‘Colin in Black and White’ Will Explore Colin Kaepernick’s Coming of Age

Before Colin Kaepernick was an elite NFL quarterback and then, global justice icon, he was just Colin — the adopted Black son of two White parents who had no idea of what was in store. But his journey to the man we know today was a fascinating one, and it’s getting its own Netflix series from creative mastermind Ava DuVernay. DuVernay’s a trusted hand in small, homespun stories about race in America, having honed them in movies like Selma and series like When They See Us. This is a different sort of story, as Kaepernick is on hand to act as narrator while his young self will be portrayed by newcomer Jaden Michael and his parents will be played by Nick Offerman and Mary Louise-Parker. Colin in Black and White is getting rave early reviews, and will drop on Netflix later in October.
