DeRay Mckesson ’07 has been at the epicenter of the firestorm emanating from Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by police there. With This Is The Moment, the award-winning online newsletter he co-founded, and his social media omnipresence, Mckesson earned a spot, along with the newsletter’s cofounder Johnetta Elzie, on Fortune‘s list of “The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.”

Mckesson delivers the talk “Ferguson, Social Media and the Common Good” at 7 p.m. April 2, 2015, in Kresge Auditorium, Visual Arts Center.
