CAMBRIDGE, MA, 2/17/14— Harvard Law School’s Black Law Student Association and the Hip Hop Entertainment Law Project will again host their annual Youth Summit.

President Obama recently announced his initiative to confront this devastating problem for young blacks and Latinos.

Harvard’s Youth Summit provides at-risk students with opportunities for mentorship and guidance. This event focuses on giving at-risk, high school youth the opportunity to engage with leaders in the black community through a non-traditional Q&A session.

The event will take place will take place on Friday, February 28, 2014 at 12:45 pm Austin North, Harvard Law School. Panelists will discuss how we, as both individuals and a community, can empower ourselves to thrive as leaders despite difficult circumstances. This year’s panelists are:

With support from various record labels, she produced, directed and promoted her infamous music showcases, M.A.D. Wednesday’s. In 1995, Maria’s life took a turn, she contracted the HIV virus unknowingly from her soon-to-be-husband. Maria knew that she had to devote her life to educating women, men and children about AIDS. Maria regularly speaks to educators, health care providers, ministers and social workers regarding HIV/AIDS awareness and sensitivity.

Romal Tune, Author, Motivational Speaker and Minister. Tune, as he is affectionately called is the Founder and Executive administrator of Faith For Change, which solicits community involvement with high-needs schools to keep kids in school and promote lasting academic achievement, and FFC Consulting, which engages and connects principals, companies, and organizations with the faith-based community at large. With education at the forefront of his mission, Tune is empowered by lessons learned from his own at-risk youth.

KJ Holiday, Director of Urban Programming Clear Channel Radio. KJ serves as Programming Director for Urban WJLB/DETROIT (WJLB FM 98) and Urban AC WMXD (MIX 92.3). Throughout his career in his various capacities as a broadcaster, K.J. Holiday has maintained a commitment of excellence in the community, being a part of some of the biggest charitable events.

The Summit will be preceded by a luncheon and keynote address from REVOLT Media & TV CEO, Keith Clinkscales.
