Op/Ed: Is This the Definition of Bait and Switch? By Jim Bell, Esquire
: When I read the headline, “Shocking Upset: Inmate Debating Team Defeats Harvard in Exhibition,” I just shook my head in disbelief. Not because some “inmates” defeated “Harvard” in a debate, but because of what was implied in the statement: (1) that just because a person gets convicted of a crime or pleads guilty to a crime (usually because they could not afford good legal counsel) that somehow that person must be less intelligent, have fewer research and analytical abilities, an unreliable or poor work ethic, and inferior oratory skills compared to a student who goes to college at Harvard; (2) that just because a person goes to college at Harvard or University of Maryland, they are somehow a superior person intellectually and professionally than someone who is incarcerated.

KEVIN POWELL, Author: A Discussion & Book Signing :: Tues., Nov. 17, 2015 at 6 pm :: Reginald Lewis Museum :: BALTIMORE
As a pop culture curator, Kevin produced the first exhibit on the history of hip-hop in America at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, which toured America and overseas. As a humanitarian, Kevin's work includes local, national and international initiatives to end violence against women and girls (including a very well-regarded appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show highlighting domestic violence); and he has done extensive philanthropic and relief work, ranging from Hurricane Katrina to earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, to Superstorm Sandy in New York, to his annual holiday party and clothing drive for the homeless every December since 9/11.
As an acknowledgement of Kevin's life of public service and his dedication to literature and the arts, Cornell University recently became the owner of The Kevin Powell Collection, documenting nearly 30 years of his work to date in print, photos, videos, books, handwritten notes, speeches, and select memorabilia.
