Colin Kaepernick has become one of the most recognizable faces of the movement for equality in the United States, which is why he is being featured as GQ’s Citizen of the Year in the magazine's "Men of the Year" issue.

Alongside Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman of the Year), Stephen Colbert (Bad Hombre of the Year), and Kevin Durant (Champion of the Year), Kaepernick graces one of four GQ covers with a feature detailing his silent protest against police brutality toward black people in the U.S.

To help him reclaim the narrative of his protest amid the harsh criticism the former NFL quarterback has faced since first kneeling during the national anthem, the GQ feature combines powerful imagery with accounts from ten of his closest confidants — including J. Cole and Ava DuVernay — that outline why his stance is so important for his community.

Check out the four covers above and read the in-depth feature here.

In other news, a rally for Meek Mill is taking place in Philadelphia.
