Some of you may only remember Kevin Powell as the angry Black guy on the very first season of MTV’s Real World who got into a heated argument with cast mate, Julie, about racism in the streets of New York City.

That was a lifetime ago, 23 years to be exact, and Kevin Powell is now known as a very prestigious and prolific activist, writer and public speaker with an extensive and very impressive resume.

I recently followed him on Twitter and he returned the favor. Here’s the conversation that lead to this #FridayReads feature:
