SANTA CLARA (KPIX 5)- Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and current activist Colin Kaepernick is set to release a memoir sometime this year.

The 32-year-old, who has been fighting to get back into the NFL since he last played in 2016, said in a press release that the memoir will explain the political awakening and events that led him to protest racial injustice and police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem.
