We're With Kaepernick

we kneel with kaep.

We started BLAQ Athlete in order to Better educate, enhance, & empower ALL BLAQ Athletes, regardless of expertise, gender, or sport. As A community of Blaq mothers, fathers, professionals, educators, students, & athletes, we understand what it means to be mis-educated, mistreated, & misinterpreted based on the rich complexion of our blaq skin. the qualities that reside in our history, communities, & culture are not reflected in our every day experiences living & raising a family in America. Systematic oppression, racial inequalities, & lack of diversity in leadership is an all time opponent when playing sports in america as a blaq athlete. we are determined to dismantling these barriers while empowering our future generations with tools, access, & resources that go way beyond their athletic abilities.

For more info about what we do & how you can help, contact us at info@blaqathlete.com

 

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way.”

– Colin Kaepernick

kneel. Speak. Support.

Lift every voice.
