My Interview With DeRay Mckesson [Black Lives Matter; Mayoral Candidate Baltimore] Was Not What I Expected

DeRay Mckesson [@DeRay] first came to fame for being the outspoken leader of the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson, Missouri.

He quit his job in Minneapolis, making six-figures, to become what news outlets have called a “professional protestor.”

His message has made police violence — and him — famous.

He is running for Mayor of Baltimore, the city of his birth and childhood and where he’s initiated community programs throughout his life. And, although he’s only at 1% in some polls, I’ve been inspired by DeRay, his focus and precision with activism, and was curious to have a heart-to-heart with him about where life is for him now.

There were some uncomfortable moments in the interview, but on the whole, I think it’s a wonderful time capsule of DeRay at age 30, where he’s at in his life and his vision for a city that needs one.

Thanks DeRay.
