In this follow-up to her 2014 bestselling "Redefining Realness," Mock revisits her young adulthood as she learns how to navigate her trans identity and advocate for herself, so that she could go on to advocate for others.

About How I Got Over series:

Join us for a new project reinventing language around race through a series of conversations and performances that explore, express and examine what it means when a social construct becomes the social order. We want people to get personal. We want provocative dialogue. We want to generate new language to execute real change. We want to talk about fear – and how it’s different if you are black or white. We want to hear people explore racism.
