Highlights from the Concert for Social Justice, hosted with the GRAMMY Museum
On April 8, 2015 Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, in partnership with the GRAMMY Museum, hosted "The Concert for Social Justice" at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, featuring performances by David Crosby & Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, La Santa Cecilia, Tom Morello and Rocky Dawuni. The concert also featured special spoken word performances from actors Dennis Haysbert, David Arquette, Chad Lowe, Martin Sheen, and Alfre Woodard. The show launched 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.
