"The Education of Kevin Powell
A Boy's Journey into Manhood
Hosted by Davey D

"As a charismatic speaker, leader, and very good writer, Kevin Powell has the courage...to be fully human, and this will bring the deepest revolution of all."  Gloria Steinem

"Poignant and transformative. This story of Black male life in our patriarchal culture, from boyhood to manhood, is raw and passionate. It offers a true and honest portrait of all that Black males endure to survive and, more importantly, to cope with trauma, and to heal and thrive.  It should be read by everyone who claims to care about the fate of Black males in America."  bell hooks
 
"This dynamic memoir takes us through a personal journey of pain, growth, triumph, defeat, and finally reclamations of his gifts and importance in U.S. letters. Using his journalist's keen eye, he also recalls key events and people over the past 40 years in American culture, music, and politics; the birth of Hip Hop, poetry slams, the life and death of Tupac Shakur, Los Angeles' rebellion after the acquital of police in Rodney
King's beating, the rise of Barack Obama, and more... "
- Luis Rodriguez, Los Angeles Poet Laureate
