At the invitation of Leaders of Tomorrow Brooklyn and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, the Brooklyn Teen Summit will take place at the historic Brooklyn Borough Hall in Downtown Brooklyn. The invitation is extended to all surrounding communities, teens, parents, and community leaders who wish to be in the live audience, and have the opportunity to ask questions and share the need to stand for peace and let their voices be heard.
The audience will have the pleasure of being in the presence of Pro Athletes, Hip Hop artists, and young community leaders out to shake the block. The intention of this day is to inspire and lead others to positivity and clarity of the topic of discussion; debating the influence School and Hip Hop has on the minds of young people. Supporters say Hip Hop artists give a voice to the streets, and lets the world know about what’s really going on.
Critics say the emphasis on violence, drugs and criminal lifestyles promote negative stereotypes, especially of young men of color. What do you think?
