Snapchat has recently announced a collection of new docuseries being released through their Snap Originals programming. The social media giant that has a far reaching scope, has released over 100 original shows and is slated to release more. The one that has caught many people’s attention is third season of Complex’s Media’s Vs The World, focused on the former NFL quarter back Colin Kaepernick.
The announcement was made this Tuesday virtually at Advertising Week. Kaepernick is known for his activism within in the NFL and outside of it, kneeling in protest against police brutality as well as many other outlets. The season will focus on his journey from when he took the knee against police violence and for racial equality nationwide on the grandest stage.

Four years ago, I took a knee to protest against systemic racism and social injustice. It was that day that the number on my jersey would come to represent something greater than football, something greater than me. Since then, the number 7 jersey has become a symbol for advancing the liberation and well-being of Black & Brown communities. Thank you for staying True. #TrueTo7
Kaep’s new venture comes nearly a month after it was announced that the free agent would be returning to popular Madden NFL 21 game with a signature celebration move being a Black Power fist and the recent Nike exclusive jersey drop commenorating four years since Colin made a stance and for the first time took a knee to protest police brutality.
