MLK Community Lunch featuring DeRay Mckesson

Reston Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration Keynote Address and Community Lunch

DeRay Mckesson is an organizer, activist and educator focused primarily on issues of innovation, equity and justice. Spurred by the death of Michael Brown and the subsequent protests in Ferguson, MO, Mckesson has become a leading voice in the effort to confront the systems and structures that lead to the mass incarceration and police killings of black and other minority populations. Mckesson’s newly released book On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope will be available for purchase before and after his keynote address, and the author will sign books following the community lunch.
