By Any Media Necessary: Mapping Youth and Participatory Politics

Black Youth Project


The Black Youth Project (BYP) started in 2004 as a national research project led by Principal Investigator Professor Cathy J.

A number of action projects have also grown out of BYP since its inception. Among them is the BYP100, a group of "100 black youth activists from across the country convened by the Black Youth Project to mobilize communities of color beyond electoral politics." Check out BYP's website, where you can learn about their research, action projects, and the BYP 100.  You can also learn more about BYP on Facebook.
