Colin Kaepernick To Have Exhibit At National Museum of African American History & Culture
We’re less than a month away from actual meaningful football being played, and Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned and possibly blackballed from the league because of his national anthem protest.
Despite his current situation, the free agent quarterback and his efforts to fight against social injustice won’t go unrewarded, as the QB will be honored with an exhibit at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

This decision comes on the heels of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture putting one of Kaepernick’s jerseys, which was worn during one of his national anthem protests, on display in an exhibit.
Sociologist and author Harry Edwards not only encouraged the museum to do it, but he had this to say:
“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,’” Edwards said, according to USA Today. “‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture. … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.’”
