Lee Gordon, “that are vital in our resolve to engage community members and teenagers, and connect to our community resources and concerned citizens who would like to be a part of the upcoming expo and our overall progress in helping more of our teens believe and succeed.”

The Triad Theater is located at 158 W. 72nd Street (near Broadway) New York, NY C The event starts at 7 pm and tickets are $10 at the door. The venue accepts cash only and has a two drink minimum. All proceeds will to benefit the National Black Teen Empowerment Expo.

About NBTEE: Designed to enrich the hearts, minds, bodies and spirits of today’s male and female teenagers between 12 and 19 years of age, the National Black Teen Empowerment Expo (NBTEE), a multi-day family friendly event, was created to expand perspectives, evoke critical thinking and create greater awareness of fulfilling ‘life path alternatives’ for urban youth. The intended outcomes are to narrow achievement gaps, close the digital divide and diminish the high school drop out rate. The 2010 expo theme is ‘a work of heART’ and will feature a combination of empowerment workshops, inspirational speeches, musical performances, short plays, spoken word and film.
