As former San Fransisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick continues to make headlines off the field, several civic innovations are taking notice and yep….that include the National Museum of African American History and Culture, as they look to hang the QB’s jersey on their walls.
According to multiple sources Director Lonnie Bunch contacted sociologist Harry Edwards who played a key role in bringing about an exhibit which featured notable African American athletes who made an impact on the world. With that being said, Edwards recently donated several different items of Kaepernick memorabilia in hopes that it would become apart of the exhibit.
Edwards told USA TODAY Sports; “Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, an a picture to to hang right along side Muhammad Ali. He’s this generations Ali”.
