Former NFL quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers will be commemorated at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

Colin Kaepernick took a knee the 2016 NFL season during the national anthem to protest against police brutality and systematic racism. According to a curator, Colin Kaepernick items will be featured in the Black Lives Matter collection.

“The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” Damion Thomas, the Washington museum’s sports curator, confirmed to USA Today Sports. “The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”
