Black History Always with "The Undefeated"
Black History isn't limited to February. It is a year-long celebration of joy, triumph and beating unimaginable odds. These accomplishments can help you find a way to break barriers and claim a space for yourself. How can you use your voice to speak truth to power? Where do you start? What hustle goes into creating your highlights? Throughout this series, D.C. teens will talk with people who use their talents, whether it's words, athleticism, artistry or advocacy to talk about claiming your voice, taking risks, and becoming the change they want to see in the world.
The Undefeated, the premier news platform for exploring the intersections of race, sports and culture, has partnered with the DC Public library to create "Black History Always." This series encourages teens to engage in discussions about politics, racial and social justice, popular culture and wherever else interests teens. By providing a platform for teens to see themselves as activists and change agents, this series encourages teens to become Black History makers of today and tomorrow.
Hang out with members of the Library's Teen Council as they chat with Kelley Carter, Senior Entertainment Writer at The Undefeated and Oscar Nominated Recording Artist, H.E.R. about their origin story, who they were as teens, their careers and how they use their platforms as journalists and artists to help create a better world. Learn more about this event and how to tune in.
