DeRay McKesson, civil rights activist and frequent public face of the Black Lives Matter movement, spoke to attendees of Forbes’ 2016 Under 30 Summit in Boston about racial justice and political activism.

McKesson’s message still rings true nearly five years later as tensions escalate across the United States.
