This event is co-sponsored by Trumbull College and the Yale Journalism Initiative.
Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary Kaepernick & America.

Following the screening, there will be Q&A with the co-producers, director, and the reporter who broke the Colin Kaepernick story.

Please join us at the Yale School of Management or via Zoom for an engaging discussion about Black History as Tim Shea will be talking to Zoë Chance, Assistant Professor of Marketing at Yale SOM about his new book “Big Man: An Incredible Journey from Mississippi to Hollywood”. Big Man is a story about the life of Willie Harris, a man who was raised as a sharecropper on a cotton plantation in Mississippi during Jim Crow, served in the U.S. Air Force, and went on to become one of the leaders of the Black Stuntmen’s Association (BSA) in Hollywood in the 1970s.
Africatown is a tight-knit community just north of Mobile, Alabama. Many of its residents are the direct descendants of more than 100 Africans who were brought to America in 1860 as captives on a ship known as the Clotilda. The international slave trade had been outlawed in the United States decades earlier in 1808, but the Clotilda illegally set sail, galvanized by a bet that enslaver Timothy Meaher would not be able to do it.
