Two weeks ago, Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson announced he was running for mayor of Baltimore. Today, he’s at the White House, meeting with President Obama.

Mckesson’s meeting with Obama is part of a larger event honoring civil rights activists and celebrating Black History Month. Al Sharpton; Rep. John Lewis; Cornell Brooks, the president of the NAACP; and Attorney General Loretta Lynch will also be there.

Mckesson was an Obama true believer back in 2008; more recently, he has written about his disappointment with the president. Hopefully that won’t make the visit awkward.
