The Black Youth Project 100

During the week of December 3-6 2015, Franklinton Center at Bricks will be the site of The Black Youth Project 100 Retreat.  The work of The Black Youth Project (BYP) is based on three basic concepts: knowledge, voice, and action.

KNOWLEDGE: They are committed to producing research about the ideas, attitudes, decision making, and lived experiences of black youth, especially as it relates to their political and civic engagement.

VOICE: Unlike any other organization, we amplify the perspectives of young black people daily without censorship or control. We have built a space on the Internet where black youth can speak for themselves about the issues that concern them.

ACTION: Informed with culturally-specific knowledge, we will work to mobilize black youth and their allies to make positive change and build the world within which they want to live.

BYP 100: Comprised of 100 black activists from across the country convened by the Black Youth Project to mobilize communities of color beyond electoral politics.
