Event Details

Please join us for the 2nd Annual  Community Forum. This youth-directed Forum will include a range of presentations and performances by local youth involved in out-of-school time programs. Local sheroes and heroes will be honored for their work in building the capacity of young people in our local community. The program will close with an intergenerational choir comprised of the Grammy Award Winning Sounds of Blackness and Coon Rapids High School Gospel Choir (recently featured on Channel 4 News).

 

The community forum will also feature a keynote address by Dr. Joseph L. White, Ph.D., pioneer in the field of Black psychology, perennial voice for youth empowerment, and strong advocate for leadership development among Black and Latino youth. His keynote address is entitled - Discovering, Rediscovering and Utilizing the Strengths of the Past to Take Control of Our Destiny as African American Youth in the 21st Century.

Renewing Hope in the Promise of Minnesota’s Youth is an opportunity to commemorate Black History Month with a series of events that embrace the insight, resourcefulness, and energy of today’s youth, while also tapping into the strengths of African American culture and history. We will bring people together across cultural and generational lines to collectively address how African American cultural strengths and lessons from history can be used to address disparities in opportunities and outcomes for under-engaged youth.
