NYC Open MIC Youth Truth
BK Nation has resurrected their monthly sessions in New York City starting with tonight at 6:30pm. The event titled ‘Youth Truth’ will be held at Judson Memorial Church, inside Assembly Hall, 239 Thompson Street between 3rd Street and Washington Square Park South in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan.
BK Nation co-founder and President Kevin Powell @kevin_powell covered Tupac multiple times while he was a senior writer for Vibe Magazine. Most notably his interview with Tupac while Tupac was incarcerated. An interview where Tupac wanted to give the world the true story, “This is my last interview. If I get killed, I want people to have the real story.” The interview is featured in Kevin Powell’s new book ‘The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood’, where he also has a chapter dedicated to his time covering Tupac.
Tonight’s free event welcomes all youth to share their voices through dance, music, poetry, live art, comedy and any other forms of expression.
