The Idea of Manhood Ep 16 – AVID, Amy, Authenticity, and AKs

Thank you for tuning into Episode 16.

I was away at an AVID conference in San Diego. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It’s an amazing college readiness system that has been in the U.S. for 30 years. It’s truly transforming some schools, and closing the achievement gap in many areas.

On my way to San Diego, I finally had a chance to watch the Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy. Wow! Just, wow!

The demons that killed her are the same demons that we all face every day.

In the day and age where there is a new random act of mass violence every other day (literally), I talk about would could be the possible cause. Do we have a gun problem, or a people problem?
