Every ticket includes a signed copy of ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FREEDOM by DeRay Mckesson (a $25 value).

“I love my blackness. And yours.”
― DeRay Mckesson

“If your love for me requires that I hide parts of who I am, then you don't love me. Love is never a request for silence.”
― DeRay Mckesson

"In the past three years I've seen unrest sweep America, first in the streets in Ferguson and then all over the country," Mckesson said in a statement. "I have seen people claim their power, knowing that this country has not yet delivered on its promise of equity and justice. In this book, I explore the causes of the current inequity and offer a vision for how we get beyond it, to a place of freedom."
