    Colin Kaepernick And Scholastic Announce Multi-Book Deal For Children’s Books


    First book, “I Color Myself Different”, scheduled for April 2022

    Additional books with Kaepernick Publishing to follow

    NEW YORK, NY—July 15, 2021— Colin Kaepernick, renowned activist, change-maker, and athlete, and Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education, and media company, announce a multi-book publishing deal. Brokered in an exclusive offer from Kaepernick Publishing, the agreement includes World rights and all languages for both print and eBook formats. Andrea Davis Pinkney, VP and Executive Editor, Scholastic, will edit the first project, a picture book illustrated by Eric Wilkerson, to be published in April 2022. 

    “Colin’s reputation as a thought leader precedes him, but it was also clear when we met that his mission and purpose were very much aligned with Scholastic’s,” said Debra Dorfman, VP and Publisher, Scholastic Global Licensing, Brands & Media. “We knew instantly that we wanted to share his stories, which will be impactful messages of identity and belonging for Black and Brown children.”  

    On April 5, 2022, Scholastic will release I Color Myself Different, a picture book inspired by a significant childhood memory of when Kaepernick first documented that he was different from his adopted white family. During a kindergarten exercise on drawing families, Kaepernick remembers putting down the yellow crayon he had been using to draw his family and picking up the brown crayon for himself. This moment crystallized for him the differences marked by his adoption, and how acknowledging those distinctions could encourage us all to be more accepting of ourselves and each other. 

    “Colin Kaepernick’s inspiring story, with themes of identity, race, and self-esteem, will resonate deeply with all kids,” said Ellie Berger, President and Publisher, Scholastic Trade Publishing. “We are privileged to bring this work to young readers around the world for the very first time.”

    “This story is deeply personal to me, and inspired by real events in my life. I hope that it honors the courage and bravery of young people everywhere by encouraging them to live with authenticity and purpose,” said Kaepernick. “I’m excited for Kaepernick Publishing to be collaborating with Scholastic on books with Black and Brown voices at the forefront.  I hope that our books will inspire readers to walk through the world with confidence, strength, and truth in all they do.”

    Holder of the all-time NFL record for most rushing yards in a game by a quarterback, Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” in 2016 to bring attention to systemic oppressions, specifically police terrorism against Black and Brown people. For his stance, he has been denied employment by the league. Since 2016, he has founded and helped fund three organizations—Know Your Rights Camp, Ra Vision Media, and Kaepernick Publishing—that together advance the liberation of Black and Brown people through storytelling, systems change, and political education. Kaepernick sits on Medium’s Board and is the winner of numerous prestigious honors including Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope honor, GQ magazine’s Citizen of the Year, the NFL’s Len Eshmont Award, the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, the ACLU’s Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award, and the Puffin/Nation Institute’s Prize for Creative Citizenship.

    How I’m Watching My Latest Obsession – With a Good VPN

    While I’m desperately waiting for Season 2, too afraid to research if there will even be a Season 2 of Law & Order Los Angeles, I am mindful that I wouldn’t be able to binge-watch my US or UK faves without my NordVPN.

    And I don’t do anything else online without using NordVPN. Anything less is just negligent these days. If you’re not using a Virtual Private Network, get one at least for when you are making financial transactions.

    Grab your tickets today: Stockholm Beauty Week 2021

    I raved about Stockholm Beauty Week in 2019. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t been before but was super grateful to have found myself in the middle of the most amazing “me” experience I had in Stockholm to date. As a blogger from the multi-award-winning (yes, I am blowing my own horn) Black Women in Europe platform, my credentials opened me up to the world of business of beauty in Scandinavia. I even made friends with the most interesting 75-year-old woman and not only have we’ve kept in contact, but we have also met for breakfast.

    Stockholm Beauty Week

    Last year, Maria Forsen, the brilliant woman behind Stockholm Beauty Week, managed to run a Covdi-19 pandemic-safe event. It was The ONLY beauty industry event held in person in Sweden last year that industry titans like Marie Houston from Scratch of Sweden attended. This year’s event runs from 30 September – 1 October and yet again, the cost for the ENTIRE event is only 100 kr. You can’t beat that price for an event of this quality! Get your tickets now before they sell out. Get your ticket before you even read about all of the beauty brands you’ll meet.
