DeRay Mckesson on "On the Other Side of Freedom"
The University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration and the Seminary Co-op Bookstores invite you to join DeRay Mckesson, the internationally recognized civil rights leader and host of the podcast Pod Save the People for a timely conversation on culture, social justice, and politics on Wednesday, 9/26 7pm at the the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools Gordon Parks Arts Hall. He'll be joined in conversation with Kimberly M. Foxx, Cook County State's Attorney and UChicago SSA Assistant Professor Yanilda González.
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 DeRay's 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" by DeRay Mckesson (a $25 value). Additional books will be available for purchase from the Seminary Co-op at the event.
Please note that tickets are non-refundable and non-returnable. If you are unable to attend the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set your copy of the book aside for you to pick up, or ship it to you for a small fee.
