Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn is rescinding a directive issued last week barring the purchase of Nike products for booster clubs associated with the city's recreation department.

Zahn's reversal came yesterday on the advice of the city attorney.

He issued the ban last week after Nike debuted an ad featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the take-a-knee movement to protest police brutality and social injustice during the playing of the national anthem.
