As part two of The House’s Black History Month event series about the Kaepernick & America documentary, we will co-host a Trumbull College Tea featuring Steve Wyche, the reporter who broke the Colin Kaepernick story. He will share about his career in journalism, and the impact that the media had and continues to have on the Kaepernick saga and racial politics in general. This event is co-sponsored by Trumbull College and the Yale Journalism Initiative.
Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary Kaepernick & America. It was nominated as Best Sports Documentary by the Critic’s Choice Awards, was called “exemplary” in the New York Times, and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary explores the life of Colin Kaepernick, former NFL quarterback and activist, as he took a stance against racism and police brutality. Following the screening, there will be Q&A with the co-producers, director, and the reporter who broke the Colin Kaepernick story.
