“Beating Injustice: Police Killings, Mass Incarceration, and Making Real Change Happen Right Now”
Ben Jealous, Civil and Human Rights Leader, Former NAACP President, Venture Capitalist & Author
A Rhodes scholar and the youngest person ever to lead the NAACP, Ben Jealous is known for being one of the most effective civil rights leaders of our day. However, it was not always clear that he would follow this path. In this speech, Jealous tells the inside history of more than 50 years of great civil rights battles, both known and unknown. He offers insight both into what our nation's greatest change agents have in common, and shows how we can all dramatically increase our capacity to make the world a better place.
