Colin Kaepernick Signs a $1 Million+ Book Deal


Recommended Posts

The New York Post reported yesterday;


"Colin Kaepernick has inked a book deal worth just over $1 million with Random House imprint One World, Page Six has exclusively learned. One World’s headed by book world superstar Chris Jackson, who also publishes Jay-Z and Ta-Nehisi Coates. He launched One World last year."


One World was founded in 1992 and was on the leading edge of imprints created to meet the demand of books dedicated to African Americans; a period which only lasted about a decade. One World has been relaunched, and Chris Jackson has been named Publisher and editor-in-chief of One World, which arguably makes him the most powerful Black man in mainstream publishing.


It will be interesting to see how this book sells.  It will probably make the NY TImes Bestsellers list because the publisher has the wherewithal to make that happen given the subject, but to earning out a million dollar advance will be a challenge. But even if the book does not earn out One World can still make a tidy sum.  But time will tell.  Maybe Chris can bring another dimension to the story; Colin being blacklisted from the NFL, how 45 changed the narrative, and how the coverage of football games has steered completely away from the National Anthem.


Well if One World profits from this particular book, at least two Black men will benefit from Colin's protest.
