Colin Kaepernick to receive Harvard awards

Colin Kaepernick will join the list of notable African American icons as he will receive Harvard’s highest honours in African & African American Studies. The NFL quarterback along with seven others including comedian Dave Chapelle will receive the W.E.B DuBois medal “in recognition of their contributions to African & African American culture and the life of the mind.”

Kaepernick was the face of Nike’s 30th-anniversary brand campaign and has been a free agent (out of a job) for the past seasons after he took a knee to protest against police and racial injustices. His actions created a lot of ripple effects and spurred dozens of others to take action. Past winners of this award include Muhammad Ali and Maya Angelou.
