Social Condition of Kevin Powell In the spirit of Piri Thomas ' Down These Mean Streets and Maya Angelou 's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, this effective diary by author and lobbyist Kevin Powell strikingly relates the horrendous neediness of his childhood, his battles to conquer a legacy of annoyance, roughness, and self-loathing, and his adventure to take care of business and a voice for others.

In any case, the battle to characterize himself and break out of destitution proceeded into adulthood, with traumatic times of vagrancy and sadness.
