The Schomburg Junior Scholars invite youth (grades 5-12) from across the city to join them for a day long teen conference exploring the impact of the Black Lives Matter Movement on the youth of today. The day will include activist teach-ins, youth-led panel discussions, teen performances, and interactive arts and media workshops. This event is presented in collaboration with Schomburg Education’s Conversations in Black Freedom Studies series and the Junior Scholars Program.
