#BlackLivesMatter: Leader Lands Gig Teaching at Yale

Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 9.15.48 AMWhat do you do when an organization starts calling ‘open season’ on killing white people and cops? You give the leader a teaching gig.

One of the newest teachers at the vaunted Yale University burnished his Ivy League resume in the Black Lives Matter movement.

DeRay McKesson will be teaching a one-credit course this fall as a guest lecturer at Yale Divinity School, according to higher education blog Campus Reform. The outspoken activist will be joining U.S. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., and the Rev. Nancy Taylor, whose Old South Church in Boston is located near the site of the 2013 marathon bombing, to teach a special three-section course as part of a new leadership program. The young activist will teach the first section of the course, entitled “Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement.”

McKesson is the only guest lecturer who is not an alumnus of Yale Divinity School.

A syllabus for the course describes the credentials of McKesson, 30.

“A young leader of the Black Lives Matter Movement, DeRay McKesson will present case studies about the work of organizing, public advocacy, civil disobedience, and social change, through both Leadership of Presence, and Leadership in the Social Media.”
