While the NFL, Trump supporters and racist hate on Colin Kaepernick for simply protesting against social injustice and police brutality, he’s still being praised for his courageous stance. Thankfully.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was honored with the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal by Harvard University some days back (October 11th). Comedian Dave Chappelle and six others were also honored with the award from the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard.
The medal is considered “Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African American studies” and is awarded “to individuals in the United States and across the globe in recognition of their contributions to African and African American culture and the life of the mind.”
