There's something highly watchable about it, particularly in young Colin's narrative. The cast within the storyline about Kaepernick's life are great, even if Kaepernick himself isn't the best host and narrator.

It's a very good series which humanizes a courageous athlete who has too often been belittled and misrepresented by ignorant ideologues.

While the execution is mixed, the aims of the series are so clear and admirable that it goes a long way. Colin in Black & White is unabashed edutainment.

Kaepernick... is a consistently magnetic presence. He's often shot staring straight into the camera, daring you to look away. That is effective.

[Jaden] Michael's self-assured performance offers a compelling glimpse of the experiences that both shaped Kaepernick's sensibility and emboldened him to take a stand.
