Black Youth IMPact, a research and advocacy group with a mission to identify how Identity, Media, Political Action, and Consciousness support Black youth’s ability to Thrive. Our research group is led by Dr. Nkemka Anyiwo, a former youth organizer with training in Developmental Psychology and social work.

We are currently recruiting participants for a research study to understand how to support Black youth in navigating racism. We will conduct two interviews with Black youth ages 13-17 from the Philadelphia Metro Area to understand youth’s thoughts, feelings, and responses to racism and racial justice. We plan to use this data to support research and youth programming that supports the well-being and empowerment of Black youth.

We ask that you consider promoting our research study to the youth you serve in your organization. Attached is a flyer with more information about our study. Flyers may be emailed and/or posted on social media platforms. Any youth interested in participating can complete this survey and/or email us at If you are interested in learning more or if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. You can reach the research team at or Dr. Anyiwo directly at
