Black Excellence Awards 2019.jpg

Celebrating BLACK Excellence

Passing the Torch

Saturday, February 16, 2019
11 am - 4:30 pm 
Roosevelt High, 6934 N Central, Portland

This year, we’re celebrating black youth in a new way. In order to change the trajectory of our youth and the constant negative image narrative that is placed on them, WE have decided to honor, praise, and bring a red-carpet event for our youth honorees and families.

Join us February 16 as we recognize 13 award winners who have been affected by gentrification, racism, and disparities in education, health, and economics. We want to honor the ways in which you rise with resiliency - in spite of.

In partnership with I am M.O.R.E. and S. Renee Mitchell, we are planning a revolutionary experience.

Know an extraordinary youth you’d like to nominate?

Email us for nomination forms at info@youthpdx.org.
