Produced by Munky King, this 6.5” figure is limited to just 25 pieces. It can be purchased now at the kaNO shop within the Adobe Creative Space in the Museum section of the virtual convention.
As Munky King explained, “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.”
