Russell Simmons,

Congressman Gregory W. Meeks, Minister Benjamin Muhammad, Darien Dash (Dame's

brother) and others will be appearing at Urban Campfire for a post 9/11 dialogue

with young adults at York College Performing Arts Theater tomorrow (April 13th).

The gathering is design to create dialogue with

young adults to discuss the issues in their lives that are effecting them after

the nation's worst attacks in history.

"Creating A New America" will inspire young people

to get involved in serving their community and country. Show host and Executive

Producer Kwame Anku says." "Since September 11th, Urban Campfire has traveled

across the country hearing from young people. We are honored to come to New

York to share what we've seen and heard. I think it says a lot for Russell

Simmons, Congressman Meeks and the others to want to convene a dialogue between

their peers and the young adults of New York City. We're proud to be helping

to make that happen." Urban Campfire is a cross-between MTV and Oprah bringing

together a diverse cross section of young adults with celebrities and cultural

icons. Past Urban Campfire guests have included Chuck D, Musiq Soulchild, Idalis

de Leon, Arianna Huffington, BET Teen Summit Host Jay Cooper, Congresswoman
