The Mission of the National Black Radio Hall of Fame 1st Annual ‘Drop the Mic’ Youth Speak-Off is to provide speaking opportunities to youth in our communities who have felt they had no voice or no platform. We seek to make a difference in the lives of youth by helping them to better process their thoughts and emotions and to communicate these thoughts and emotions through development of their writing and speaking skills. It is our mission to help them recognize, develop and express their God given voice to improve their lives and the lives of those around them---both near and far.
It is the vision of the National Black Radio Hall of Fame 1st Annual Youth Speak-Off to host public speaking competitions, to teach and develop young speakers through the use of public speaking clubs and camps, ultimately developing trained youth speakers with grand stage speaking experience.
