Media personality George Kilpatrick says that we can lead from here.

To show he’s living up to his word, he recently reached out to BK Nation’s Kevin Powell for a conversation about ending domestic violence from a male perspective.

Powell is a familiar, progressive voice on the national networks and in magazines. He is working on a memoir about his journey into manhood. In 2015 he will also publish a biography of Tupac.

BK Nation is a 21st Century Civil Rights organization.
