Last night in New York City, Colin Kaepernick was honored with the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
Beyoncé came as a surprise, and presented the award to Kaepernick while delivering a heartfelt speech.
“Thank you Colin Kaepernick. Thank you for your selfless heart, and your conviction,” the “Lemonade” singer said in her presentation speech. “Thank you for your personal sacrifice. Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion only hope to change the world for the better. To change perception, to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color.”
