After the murder of Michael Brown, Moore organized bus trips from New York to Ferguson, becoming one of the initiators of the Black Lives Matter movement. This is just one of the many courageous and inspiring acts that have contributed to Moore’s being named one of The Root 100, one of Ebony magazine's Power 100, and one of Planned Parenthood's 99 Dream Keepers. As this compelling memoir shows, however, Moore’s triumphs are rooted in pain and suffering. He grew up in Camden, a city visibly scarred by uprisings and repression. He was bullied as a child and nearly burned to death in an anti-gay hate crime at age fourteen. Against the odds, Moore survived his early traumas and has found his calling in fighting for justice. Moore will be in conversation with Clint Smith, a writer, PhD candidate at Harvard University, and author of Counting Descent.
