Kaepernick to release memoir through his publishing company,
Colin Kaepernick can add author and publisher to his resume. The former NFL quarterback who knelt during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality announced he’s writing a memoir through his own publishing company.
It’s called Kaepernick Publishing, and the audio version of the currently untitled book due later this year will be available through Audible, a subsidiary of Amazon.
The 32-year-old Kaepernick has been out of a job in the NFL the last three years. He filed a grievance against the NFL, contending teams colluded to keep him out. The sides reached an undisclosed settlement.
Kaepernick will write about that experience and what prompted his activism.
