Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick met with students at a Harlem high school last week. Kaepernick posted a video to his twitter page showing parts of the visit he made to Dream Charter School.
In the video Kaepernick speaks to a group of assembled students, takes photos, and passes out backpacks.

Kaepernick went to the school to discuss injustice and the importance of speaking out against it. Kaepernick, who is just as famous for his protest of the national anthem than his playing career at this point, began taking a knee last season during the anthem to protest police brutality.
Previously Kaepernick donated $25,000 to the school according to the Dream instagram page.
A few weeks ago, @kaepernick7 donated 25,000 to DREAM as part of his million dollar pledge. Today, he and @nessnitty stopped by to talk to our founding 9th graders about activism, taking risks, and starting difficult conversations. We're so grateful to have friends who believe in our youth and their future. #WeAreDREAM
