NYC teens share real stories of growth and resilience in the wake of 2020.
Imagine growing into your most formative years during a global pandemic. Imagine growing into your most formative years amidst a social justice uprising and amidst renewed calls for racial equity. Now imagine doing both as a Black, Latinx, and/or Asian American teenager in New York City. Generation Rise is a collection of teenagers telling true stories as they bridge identities, cultures, and lived experiences and try to mature into the adults they are destined to be in the world.
