DeRay Mckesson is an educator, a civil rights activist, and a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter movement. With more than a half-million Twitter followers, he is widely recognized and respected for “telling the truth, in public.”

In April 2015, Mckesson and fellow activists Johnetta Elzie, Samuel Sinyangwe, and Brittany Packnett launched Mapping Police Violence, which collected data on people killed by police during 2014. In August 2015, the same group launched Campaign Zero, a ten-point policy plan for police reform. Mckesson and Elzie were awarded the Howard Zinn Freedom to Write Award in 2015 for their activism. In 2015, Mckesson was named one of the World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune Magazine and one of the 30 Most Influential People On The Internet by TIME Magazine in 2016.

Mckesson is currently the interim Chief Human Capital Officer for Baltimore City Public Schools and a Fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics. He is a 2007 graduate of Bowdoin College and received an honorary doctorate earlier this
year from The New School in New York City.
