Black Youth Nation is an emerging pilot project led by our honorable elder (in-residence), Nene Kwasi Kafele.
Since July BYN has been providing an empowering space for young people to come and explore their identities, discuss the issues that matter in their lives and in our communities, and explore the tools that they/we need in becoming their highest selves.
Participants have been deepening relationships and sharing their gifts and creativity in abundance with everything from warrior mapping activities, spoken word sessions an epic debate on reparations, all grounded in a revolutionary love and re/learning black excellence.
In answering the call to serve the most vulnerable in our communities, we are blessed to be surrounded with a group of mad gifted, creative, and passionate young leaders who are committed to sharing their invaluable energy and gifts in sustaining this program through the next cycle of our evolution.
Special Thanks to: Nene Kwasi Kafele providing leadership in developing this project
