On the Other Side of Freedom:
The Case for Hope
In August of 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, Mckesson lays out the intellectual, pragmatic political framework for a new liberation movement.
Michel Martin, host of NPR Weekend All Things Considered, says:
“DeRay Mceesson offers a theology of hope that can be understood and embraced even by people who are not religious.”
