Madyson Frame, Connecticut

CPBN Media Lab | Hartford, CT

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

At a time when conversations about race and violence dominate every platform, Madyson Frame recites a spoken word poem describing her frustration and hopes as a young black woman.
