How Denver Youths are Breaking the Stigma of Mental Health in the Black Community

Director and producer Bo Olagbegi, also known as Uncle Tuxx, sheds light on the power of youth voices in his latest documentary, ‘Voices Unheard: Breaking the Silence on Mental Health in the Black Community.’ Premiering at Denver’s Sie FilmCenter on April 25th, in alignment with National Youth Violence Prevention Week, the film sparked a crucial dialogue. ‘These youth really have something to say,’ remarked Olagbegi during a panel discussion following the screening. Engaging members of the Denver Youth Violence Prevention Center, Youth Advisory Council, Game Changers program, along with local leaders, the event emphasized the importance of amplifying young voices and addressing mental health challenges.
