Colin Kaepernick’s jersey will be displayed at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and that should mean something right?
According to Rolling Stone the jersey along with other items will be showcased at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
“The Kaepernick items are not currently on display, but the museum’s curator of sports, Damion Thomas, told USA TODAY Sports that he expects new material in their collection will be rotated into exhibits in one to two years.”
Harry Edwards a sociologist sent the stuff to the Smithsonian:
“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,’ ” Edwards told USA TODAY Sports. “ ‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.’ ”
