Notes From Your Bookseller

Colin Kaepernick already has several distinct chapters of his life written. This next one, as children's book author and publisher, could be his most impactful. Inspired by his childhood in a mixed race household, mixed race school and mixed race world, Colin tells the story of what happens when a brown child is asked to draw a picture of himself and his family — which is white. Great for fans of I Promise, Sulwe and All Because You Matter.


An inspiring story of identity and self-esteem from celebrated athlete and activist Colin Kaepernick.

When Colin Kaepernick was five years old, he was given a simple school assignment: draw a picture of yourself and your family. What young Colin does next with his brown crayon changes his whole world and worldview, providing a valuable lesson on embracing and celebrating his Black identity through the power of radical self-love and knowing your inherent worth.

I Color Myself Differentis a joyful ode to Black and Brown lives based on real events in young Colin's life that is perfect for every reader's bookshelf. It's a story of self-discovery, staying true to one's self, and advocating for change... even when you're very little!
