Vibrant posters at bus stops throughout Oakland are changing the conversation about the aspirations of the city's young, black men. The poster series - "#DeterminedTo" - is a project of the DetermiNation Media Group, which was launched in 2012 by United Roots in partnership with Urban Peace Movement. DetermiNation engages Oakland's young black men striving to achieve their professional, educational, or personal goals. Participants develop media production skills and produce short films, music, and graphic designs to share personal stories and craft a new vision of what is possible for young people of color. DetermiNation is doing a #DeterminedTo campaign from November 10 - 14, 2014, and we are specifically inviting young men of color from across California to tweet a photo of what they are #DeterminedTo do for their communities.
