Where Are They Now? 11 Of The Most Rachet, Lovable and Controversial Black Folks From “The Real World”

Appearing on the first season of “The Real World,” Kevin Powell was definitely a memorable character as he was a young activist with a strong stance on any and everything. He, like Coral, was known for bumping heads with his roommates when it came to discussions about race and social issues. But after the show ended, Powell ended up having some of the most substantial success of any of “The Real World” cast members we’ve seen. He went on to be a founding staff member and senior writer for VIBE magazine, wrote for many other prominent publications, has written a number of books, and has of course, tried to get involved in politics to no avail. He most recently was noted as being a writing fellow for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.
