Product Details


“By turns lyrical reflection and practical handbook, On the Other Side of Freedom reveals the mind and motivations of a young man who has risen to the fore of millennial activism through study, discipline, and conviction. His belief in a world that can be made better, one act at a time, powers his narratives and opens up a view on the costs, consequences, and rewards of leading a movement.”
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“Mckesson and a core group of other activists have built the most formidable American protest  movement of the 21st century to date”
The New York Times

“In this thoughtful collection of essays, activist and podcaster Mckesson reflects on what he’s learned from protest, family upheaval, racial inequality, homophobia, community organizing, abuse, and love… Calmly but with conviction, he lays out a philosophy of future-oriented action… a welcoming, accessible, and inspiring entrance point to social justice work.”
Publishers Weekly

“In this deeply felt debut, [Mckesson] combines memoir with discussions of race and violence in America, offering an inside view of the BLM movement… A compelling account of technology-powered protest.”
Kirkus Reviews
