Kevin Powell: Transitioning from Toxic Manhood – Short Clip

Kevin Powell, a leading figure in the movement to redefine manhood and in contemporary American political, cultural and literary life as well as in the hip-hop arena, is the product of a single mother, absent father and severe poverty in his youth. In spite of those challenges, he has become an acclaimed, prolific writer, authoring 13 books, including his autobiography, “The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood.”

In this short clip from his keynote at the 2018 Bioneers Conference, Powell urges men to identify toxic masculinity in their lives and eradicate it.
