DeRay Mckesson: #BlackLivesMatter

DeRay Mckesson: #BlackLivesMatter

Monday 26 August 2019, 7:30pm—8:45pm

In August 2014, twenty-nine-year-old activist DeRay Mckesson stood with hundreds of others on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, to push a message of justice and accountability. These protests, and others like them in cities across the country, resulted in the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement. Now, in his first book, 'The Other Side of Freedom: Race and justice in a divided America', Mckesson lays down the intellectual, pragmatic, and political framework for a new liberation movement.

In August 2014, twenty-nine-year-old activist DeRay Mckesson stood with hundreds of others on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, to push a message of justice and accountability. These protests, and others like them in cities across the country, resulted in the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement. Now, in his first book, 'The Other Side of Freedom: Race and justice in a divided America', 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.

This is a must-see event for anyone with a passion for justice or the heart of an activist. Mckesson appears in conversation with Victor Rodger, followed by audience Q&A and book signing.

Presented by WORD Christchurch in association with TEDx Christchurch and Verb Wellington
