February 8, 2020 10:00am – 10:00pm
The Schomburg Center’s fourth annual Black Lives Matter Teen Conference (BLMTC) centers young people and engages them as key leaders and influencers within their communities. The BLMTC convenes young people (ages 11-18) from across New York City and the Tri-State area to celebrate and affirm their voices, build community, and provide today and tomorrow’s leaders with the tools and knowledge to responsibly make the world a better place.
This conference is inspired by the Black Lives Matter Movement founded by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi in 2013, and the incredible young people who are committed to justice, equity, and happiness for all. The day will include activist teach-ins, youth-led panel discussions, teen performances, and interactive arts and media workshops, and a Teen Night Open Mic Edition.
All workshops are first to come, first seated. Registration opens at 9:00 AM!
Free. #BLMTeenConference #TeenNight
