A special Father’s Day talk featuring Kevin Powell, writer, public speaker, activist, and author of The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood.

Kevin Powell is one of the most acclaimed political, cultural, literary and hip-hop voices in America today. The product of a single mother, an absent father, violence, and horrific poverty, he was able to study at Rutgers University in his home state of New Jersey due to a full financial aid package, and against great odds. Kevin has gone on to be a writer who has worked for a wide range of newspapers and magazines and major websites, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, NPR, ESPN, Essence, Ebony, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and Vibe, where he was a senior writer and founding staff member. Most recently, Kevin wrote a British GQ cover story on Black Panther movie co-star Michael B. Jordan, and currently hosts an Apple Podcast called “One on One with Kevin Powell.” Kevin Powell is also the author of 13 books, including his critically acclaimed autobiography, The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood. His 14th book will be a biography of Tupac Shakur, who Kevin interviewed many times while working for Vibe. Kevin is also a long-time public speaker and activist, and is the co-founder of BK Nation, a new American organization and website focused on equal opportunities for all people. Kevin and his wife are proud and long-time residents of Brooklyn, New York.

Ceremonial Hall, 4th Floor

The New Black is a documentary that tells the story of how the African-American community is grappling with the gay rights issue in light of the recent gay marriage movement and the fight over civil rights. The film documents activists, families and clergy on both sides of the campaign to legalize gay marriage and examines homophobia in the black community’s institutional pillar—the black church and reveals the Christian right wing’s strategy of exploiting this phenomenon in order to pursue an anti-gay political agenda.

The New Black takes viewers into the pews and onto the streets and provides a seat at the kitchen table as it tells the story of the historic fight to win marriage equality in Maryland and charts the evolution of this divisive issue within the black community.
