We Are Free, You & Me
By: Colin Kaepernick & Nessa Diab
Illustrated by: Gladys Jose
We have some amazing news for you. Our founders, Colin and Nessa in partnership with Scholastic, announced plans to publish the picture book We Are Free, You & Me in the US and Canada on October 1, 2024. Authored by Colin and Nessa, with illustrations by Gladys Jose, We Are Free, You & Me is a lyrical affirmation of what freedom truly means—and celebrates the principles of Colin and Nessa's Know Your Rights Camp, an international movement that has inspired thousands of young people to rejoice in their inherent goodness. Kaepernick and Diab will donate 100% of their proceeds from the book to Know Your Rights Camp.
“We’re proud to collaborate with Colin and Nessa on their picture book debut,” said Andrea Davis Pinkney, Vice President, Executive Editor, Scholastic. “Their triumphant anthem for all children celebrates the freedom that lives in everyone. This book’s read-aloud power will have kids rejoicing in their own brilliance and freedom!”
“As parents, this project has been especially meaningful to us,” said Colin Kaepernick and Nessa Diab. “The messages contained in We Are Free, You & Me represent what we aspire to affirm in our own child. The book celebrates a fictional family enjoying a day together in their loving community. We hope this book inspires young people to live in the light of their own strength, truth, and self-worth as they embark on their journey through life. Artist Gladys Jose has beautifully rendered the vibrancy that shines in the universal joy and promise that’s illuminated in the experiences of community.”
