Year 14, Book 13

13. On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope by Deray McKesson

Deray McKesson shares how he got involved as an activist in Ferguson, Missouri after the death of Michael Brown and how it inspired him to continue the mission. He talks about his life, his work, and the things that bring him hope to continue fighting and believing that the world can be changed for the better. I do very much appreciate reading a book that tries to inspire hope in a cause as I am very much inclined to feel hopeless about large, systemic problems like the ones McKesson writes about. I give it a 7 out of 10.
