PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- The Field Gallery is presenting Kahlil Koromantee’s visual and written work in a four-week event "Engaging Hard to Reach Youth."
The event will take place from July 9 to Aug. 6 with an opening reception on Saturday July 9, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Kahlil Koromantee is a youth advocate, life coach and author. His motivational books are for parents, educators, and underrepresented youth who seek alternative tools in addressing concerns relating to functional depression, cultural and sexual identity, mass unemployment and incarceration, anger management, girl bullies, peer pressure, and hyper-masculinity.
"Engaging Hard to Reach Youth" is a program and art show based on Kahlil’s books addressed to young people including "Message To a Youngblood," "Before You Fly Off" and "I’m Not Gay, I Just Mess With Guys Sometimes" as well as his experiences working with marginalized youth, including those who are incarcerated, recently discharged, aging out of foster care, or placed in intervention programs -- all seeking out-of-the-box answers to out-of-the-box questions.
The artwork presented is created by the youth themselves. Parents and educators struggling to gain better understanding of questionable behavior are encouraged to attend.

The Field Gallery is at the Field Library. 4 Nelson Ave., Peekskill.
