Colin Kaepernick

By Blake Hoena
Illustrated by Sam LeDoyen

Colorful graphic non-fiction that showcases activism in sports, mixing social history and athletic action.

This graphic biography shows readers the moments that have defined Colin Kaepernick's life as a quarterback and an activist. His talent and determination made him a college football success and brought him to the National Football League. As a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, he led his team to multiple playoffs and even competed in the Super Bowl. When outrage over violence against African Americans became a national movement, Kaepernick joined the protests. His decision cost him his career in football, but he gained a voice heard worldwide.

  • Accessible approach that unpacks different historical moments
  • Inviting graphic nonfiction format
  • Visuals capture the intensity of athletic competition
