LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA! Noted author and journalist Kevin Powell is VERY HAPPY to announce his 2-year/100-city national speaking tour, “The Education of Us Tour,” will come to Southern California, SATURDAY, APRIL 28, at the Los Angeles Public Library, central branch located at 630 West 5th Street. He is seeking local non-profits to participate in this event. Powell is best known for being a cast member on MTV’s “The Real World” and his best-selling book “The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood”.
This event is FREE and all ages and all people are welcome. Doors open at 1:30pm, we begin promptly at 2:00pm.
There will be a live dj and cultural performances, and many local community-based organizations tabling with resources, services, and information. Just as important this tour is about bringing diverse groups of people together around the country to have real and honest conversations about America—past, present, future, always with an eye and ear toward practical solutions, action steps, more. I will speak at each stop on the tour but, more importantly, Powell will facilitate the interactive conversations at each stop. We just respectfully ask that folks come with peace, love, an open mind, and ideas on how to make this world better for us all. I will definitely be sharing my ideas in that way
