Co-Created by Kaepernick and DuVernay, the New Limited Series Colin in Black and White is Out Now Only On Netflix
Shortly after a red carpet premiere in New York City, Netflix brought out the stars for the official Los Angeles premiere for Colin in Black and White, a new limited series co-created by Colin Kaepernick and Ava DuVernay.
From co-creators Ava DuVernay and Colin Kaepernick comes Colin in Black and White, a bold new dramatic limited series that chronicles Kaepernick’s coming of age story, tackling the obstacles of race, class and culture as the Black adopted child of a white family. Colin in Black and White stars Jaden Michael as Young Colin before reaching the highest levels of American football as an NFL quarterback and becoming a cultural icon and activist; Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker as his well-meaning parents Rick and Teresa; and Colin Kaepernick himself, who appears as the present-day narrator of his own story, guiding viewers through a robust and colorfully presented array of historical and contemporary contextual moments. You don’t know Kaepernick until you know Colin.
