Join SURJ Marin facilitators on December 19th to discuss the limited Netflix series, Colin in Black and White.
From co-creators Ava DuVernay and Colin Kaepernick comes Colin in Black and White, a bold new limited series that chronicles Kaepernick’s 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.
The series is 6 short (30-minute) episodes. We recommend you watch them all if possible, and we will show some clips during our discussion. You can watch the trailer here.
This conversation is intended primarily for the education of white people. We welcome all who want to help move white people along in the movement for racial justice.
The event will not be recorded.
