WHAT KIND OF HUMAN DO YOU WANT TO BE?
With Kevin Powell
A little over a year ago my friend Jessica and I had the opportunity to chat with the incredible speaker and writer, Kevin Powell. Kevin has published 14 books and has written for all sorts of publications, from Newsweek to Washington Post and Rolling Stone. You may have even seen him on one of his many television interview appearances or as a host for different shows on HBO, BET, and MTV.
What’s clear, and you’ll hear it in this interview, is Kevin is an immense raw force. He lives what he speaks and he speaks what he lives. He writes and speaks what he is passionate about and common themes in his writing range from racism, politics, and masculinity, to activism and love. In my chat with him, he poses a question, a question that really got me thinking and a question we should all ask ourselves, what kind of human being do I want to be? Kevin wants to be a man of service. A man of love.
This is my conversation with Kevin Powell, welcome to Kiss the Ground.
DON'T MISS OUT
The essence of the work of Kiss the Ground is this deep reverence for life. A conversation about ecology, soil, trees, and all the layers of the biology and living things that contribute to our existence. Interconnection and love of the world.
