Netflix will explore Colin Kaepernick’s high school years in a six-part series, the streaming service announced on Monday.

“Colin in Black and White” will attempt to show what the former NFL quarterback experienced and what led to his social activism.

Award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay will produce the series, while Kaepernick will narrate an actor portraying him as a youth in the scripted drama.

“Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens,” Kaepernick said in a release. “We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that Black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted Black man in a white community, during my high school years. It’s an honor to bring these stories to life in collaboration with Ava for the world to see.”
