Shoutout to Colin Kaepernick who was awarded the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal by Harvard University yesterday. The medal is considered as “Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African American studies” and only awarded to individuals in recognition of their contributions to African and African American culture and the life of the mind. Check out his remarks below and y’all make sure to show him some love!
