THE BRONX - Bronx teens had a lot to say at the eighth annual Youth Speaks Day held at Evander Childs High School.

This year's topic was "Real Talk," and the teens spoke about topics like bullying and racism.

"I think it's very important that we can talk about this because kids usually can't express their feelings, so they usually keep it bottled in," says eighth-grader Sasha Lopez.

The program was organized by the Youth Empowerment Program and City Councilor Andy King (D-Bronx).
