Award-winning filmmaker #AvaDuVernay and #ColinKaepernick are collaborating on a new TV series! According to @VanityFair, the series, which has yet to be named, will be a comedy with focus on different experiences the football player-turned-activist had during his high school years.
DuVernay has always spoken highly of Kaepernick, and in an interview she did with @GQ last April, she said that she views him and his activism as art.
“I see what he’s done as art,” DuVernay said. “I believe that art is seeing the world that doesn’t exist. You know a lot of people excel at creativity—making TV, movies, painting, writing books—but you can be an artist in your own life. Civil rights activists are artists. Athletes are artists. People who imagine something that is not there.”
Are y’all here for it, Roommates?!
