June’s Breck Film Society calendar is honoring Juneteenth, a federal holiday that commemorates the emancipation of slaves in America on June 19, with a special screening Tuesday, June 14. Last year, the nonprofit showed shorts about Black adventurers, and the sports theme continues with “Kaepernick & America.”

Focusing on NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his kneel during the national anthem, the documentary discusses racism and explores what happened following the gesture.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. at The Eclipse Theater, 103 S. Harris St., Breckenridge. Tickets at $13 for nonmembers and free for members. Visit to purchase.
