When then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem to protest racist police violence, it pushed the boundaries of what has been a renaissance of political athletes, the likes of which we have not seen since the 1960s. But it did more than that. It has inspired sports resistance across the country and inspired Kaepernick to take his activism beyond the symbolic and towards radical community organizing. This talk will attempt to debate and discuss the impact and the limits of the year of Kaepernick.
