Why is this event so important?
There has been an increasing onslaught of detriment that seems to permeate our Urban Communities. The image of Urban Youth, particularly that of the African American teenage male, has been synonymously linked to drugs, violence & death! This image has caused devastation to all members of our Urban communities as a collective but none more so than our Elders.
Urban Chicago needs a facelift and that new face is:
Beynji Marsh and UDÉ YAH!
Beynji honors the idea that it takes a village to raise a child. But he also embraces the idea that it takes those children to nurture and care for our Elders in order to keep the village strong. With that in mind and that as the goal he recognizes that the youth have an equal responsibility to create a new image of themselves, for themselves and for the community.
Beynji, a native of Bronzeville, is a young talented Black male who is well on target to contribute to creating that new image. He is a member of the Chicago High School for the Arts Inaugural Class of 2013 (the Pioneers). At the age of 18, he has already become an accomplished Artist in Chicago. He is a Dancer, Choreographer, Music Producer and Entrepreneur. He founded his own youth group UDÉ YAH in 2010 with whom he has been performing and sharing the gift of the Fine and Performing Arts throughout Chicago. He has won various awards as an individual and as part of the group.
He is currently working to build UDÉ YAH into a world renowned dance and arts organization led by youth to reach youth. He was awarded the 2011 Dance Chicago Best New Voice in Choreography. He is a 2013 YoungArts winner in Choreography.
He was admitted to the University of Michigan's BFA program with a concentration in Dance. He will also minor in Arts Management and Kinesiology or Filmology. He was awarded a full cost of attendance scholarship. He is the first UM School of Music, Theater and Dance student to receive such an honor.
In an effort to contribute to reshaping the image of Urban youth Beynji Marsh presents:

This is going to be a HUGE community event. It will touch the lives of hundreds of Elders who deserve to witness Chicago's Urban Youth in a positive new light.
