DeRay McKesson — The Case for Hope

About This Episode

Civil rights activist, teacher, and author, DeRay Mckesson thinks hope is the belief that tomorrow can be better than today. As one of the leading voices in the Black Lives Matter Movement and the co-founder of Campaign Zero, DeRay has spent his life working to connect individuals with knowledge and tools, and provide citizens and policy-makers with commonsense policies to ensure equity.

He’s most notably known as the host of Pod Save the People and named as one of the World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune Magazine in 2015 — as well as as one of the 30 Most Influential People on the Internet by Time Magazine in 2016.

In this conversation, Branden and DeRay talk about his book ‘On the Other Side of Freedom’ and his personal journey of advocacy and activism that has caught America’s attention.

“Justice that is not rooted in equity, in social welfare, and in community is not justice at all.”

— DeRay Mckesson
