Kaepernick offered some insight into his new show, saying:

"Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens, 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."

"We're proud to bring Colin's experience and his creative vision to life as he joins Ava to share his powerful story and message with all our members around the world, It is an unparalleled union of two strong and defining voices coming together to tell the story about what it's like to be Black in America."
