The New Faces of Our Struggle

The faces of young African Americans have flooded social media as they assume their role in the struggle that predates them.
Who are these young leaders? Some of them will attend the National Youth Summit in November in Atlanta where they will be tutored by the surviving architects of the Civil Rights Movement. TheVillageCelebration’s Vickie Newton talked with Dr. Christi Griffin, founder of the Summit.

TheVillageCelebration is an online magazine dedicated to reporting stories that highlight the rich tradition of triumph, perseverance, and faith of African-Americans. Every day African-Americans are succeeding, living their dream, moving on up. And we want to share it with others. Welcome to TheVillageCelebration. Everyone likes a good story. Victory from defeat. Good over evil. Something from nothing. Problem is… we rarely read it, hear it, or see it. The news of the day records the American experience with a broad brush, painting a picture focused on that which dominates the daily landscape. The disasters, the politics, the wars. But look closely, life is being lived in and around these headlines.
