DeRay McKesson is best known for his activism and protest in the #BlackLivesMatter movement, his Campaign Zero proposals, and now his campaign to become the next mayor of Baltimore, MD.
We had the chance to speak with DeRay about his upbringing in Baltimore and his connection to the city, and we reminisced on the shared Baltimorean experiences of The Big Phat Morning Show, Shake and Bake, K-Swift, club music, and more.
We speak on a variety of other topics as well, such as addiction, education, politics and what it’s like to campaign, and his conversation with President Barack Obama. We also get into some of the points of his detailed platform which outlines his plans once in office.
We apologize for the shaky audio, but this episode with one of the most interesting, polarizing, and important figures in modern civil rights is a must listen.
