DeRay Mckesson on tour

I caught DeRay Mckesson on his book tour as it passed through Portland tonight. He did about an hour on stage taking questions from host Lauretta Charlton before moving to another half hour of audience Q&A (on cards, no mics in the crowd, which was a welcome change).

DeRay was inspiring in all his answers as he urged us to join a movement, do the work instead of just giving lip service, and got an adoring crowd charged up for change. You can still check him out on tour for another couple weeks and I’d urge anyone that can see him to go check him out.
