About “The Messenger”
MATERIAL: Crystal Clear Resin or Black Vinyl
HEIGHT: 6.5 inches
EDITION SIZE: 50
Football players often take a knee when someone suffers a severe injury on the field. An enduring expression of empathy amidst the combative intensity of the game.
Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem in solidarity with African American victims of police brutality. His call for empathy was met with angry vitriol from a polarized society. His message co-opted by powerful interests to serve their own agendas.
But his call for social justice endures through the iconic image of taking a knee – a solemn testament to the injury of those denied the equal humanity which lies at the core of America’s ideals.
A portion of the sales from both versions will be donated to Know Your Rights Camp, a charity founded by Kaepernick which empowers youth and prepares them for interactions with law enforcement.
