DeRay Mckesson, the internationally recognized civil rights leader and host of the podcast Pod Save the People, comes to Austin for a timely conversation on culture, social justice, and politics. Drawing from his own experiences as an organizer, educator, and public official, DeRay will explore the issues of the day and discuss the subtle structures and inherent biases that impact our communities.

The conversation will also examine the core themes of DeRays upcoming first book, On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope, a meditation on resistance, justice, and freedom, and an intimate portrait of the Black Lives Matter movement from the front lines. DeRay will be joined by special guests for a live, no-holds-barred conversation about inclusion, community, and progress designed to empower a new generation of leaders.

Every ticket includes a copy of On the Other Side of Freedom.
