Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick already founded a publishing company and served as an editor for its first title.
Now, it’s time for him to pick up the pen — or crayon, as it were.
The Associated Press reports that Kaepernick is releasing a children’s book titled I Color Myself Different in April.
The inspiration comes from his memory of drawing a family picture in kindergarten and using different colored crayons to depict his adoptive parents than he used for himself.
The AP says Kaepernick has more books in the works through the same deal with Scholastic.
As an NFL player, Kaepernick drew attention, both positive and negative, for kneeling during The Star-Spangled Banner to protest against systemic racism and police brutality.
