DeRay Mckesson: #BlackLivesMatter

26 August 2019 | WORD Christchurch Shifting Points of View

In his first book, 'The Other Side of Freedom: Race and justice in a divided America', Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson lays down the intellectual, pragmatic, and political framework for a new liberation movement.

Mckesson places an idea of shared hope for a better future at the core of his activism. He encourages us to take responsibility for imagining, then building, the world we want to live in.

Mckesson appears in conversation with Victor Rodger, followed by audience Q&A, where among other wisdom, he offers advice to white people on how to become a better ally.
