In partnership with the Robert F. Kennedy Human RightsIn partnership with Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (formerly the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights), the GRAMMY Museum will produce “The Concert for Social Justice” in Los Angeles on April 8, 2015, featuring performances by David Crosby & Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, La Santa Cecilia, Tom Morello and Rocky Dawuni. The concert will also feature special spoken word performances from actors Dennis Haysbert, David Arquette, Chad Lowe, Martin Sheen, and Alfre Woodard. The show will highlight the power of music as a tool for social justice and will feature a collection of artists performing songs that have helped generate change over the past five decades. The concert will help fund the organizations’ joint K-12 education program, “Speak Up Sing Out: Songs of Conscience.” This program, first piloted in Los Angeles schools in 2014, invites middle-school and high-school students to write songs about social justice issues using materials from the RFK’s Speak Truth To Power human rights curriculum and the GRAMMY Museum’s Civil Rights curriculum.
