Description:
Five years ago, DeRay Mckesson quit his job as a school teacher, moved to Ferguson, Missouri, and spent the next 400 days on the streets as an activist, helping to bring the Black Lives Matter movement into being. Even when the police made it illegal to stand still, they refused to back down. Now, in his first book, Mckesson lays down the intellectual, pragmatic, and political framework for a new liberation movement. Honest, courageous, and imaginative, 'On the Other Side of Freedom' is a work brimming with hope. Drawing on his own experiences - of growing up without his mother, with a father in recovery, of having a house burn down and a bully chase him home from school, of pacifying a traffic cop at gunpoint, of determined activism on the streets and in the White House - Mckesson asks us to imagine the best of what is possible.
