Over the weekend, Kaepernick and his partner, media personality Nessa Diab, dropped by the DREAM Charter School in Harlem to gift students with backpacks and talk to them about social justice. “You have to speak just in an unjust room, even if no one likes what you have to say,” he said the students.
