What’s that they say about the squeaky well? Oh, that’s right: that it gets a teaching gig at one of the nation’s premier Ivy League universities.
According to Campus Reform, “DeRay McKesson, one of the most vocal leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, will be teaching a one credit course at Yale Divinity School this fall as a guest lecturer.
“McKesson, whom the university describes as a ‘civil rights activist and social media leader’ will teach a course titled ‘Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,’ as part of Yale Divinity School’s ‘Transformational Leadership for Church and Society‘ program.”
Not mentioned in the syllabus is the fact that McKesson was arrested during the Ferguson, Mo., protests, though Yale would probably see this as hands-on experience for someone teaching a course that delves into the realms of “civil disobedience” and “social change.”
According to his LinkedIn profile, his only previous teaching experience was as a middle school math teacher.
