After his national anthem protests, one result is Colin Kaepernick immortalized in the Smithsonian Black Lives Matter exhibit. The items related to his national anthem protest will be added to the exhibit.
Per Daily Wire:
“The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” the museum’s sports curator, Damion Thomas, told USA Today’s A.J. Perez on Friday. “The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”
In May, sports sociologist and civil rights activist Harry Edwards told USA Today’s Jarrett Bell he had worked to acquire pieces of Kaepernick memorabilia to donate to the museum for a future exhibit.
