On his new memoir and hopes for NFL return

Colin Kaepernick’s voice is getting stronger.

That much is clear as the former NFL quarterback plans to announce Thursday he is writing a memoir to be released this year through his newly formed company, Kaepernick Publishing.

“I learned early on that in fighting against systematic oppression, dehumanization and colonization, who controls the narrative shapes the reality of how the world views society,” Kaepernick said Tuesday in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY Sports. “It controls who’s loved, who’s hated, who’s degraded and who’s celebrated.”

Kaepernick, 32, has been unsigned by NFL teams since 2017 after he protested police brutality against African Americans and other social injustices by kneeling during the national anthem the previous season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

His yet-to-be-named memoir should fill in the gaps of the past few years, as well as provide more insight on the motivation and methods behind his activism. Though  Kaepernick has been engaged in self-empowerment efforts for black and brown people through his Know Your Rights Camps, he has rarely conducted news media interviews or been available in other public forums.

Undoubtedly, many will want to hear from Kaepernick, who despite being shunned by NFL teams has become a prominent cultural figure – especially among African Americans.
