Brooklyn born and bred soul star Maxwell has set a date for his inaugural “Black Summer Night For Social Justice” this summer, a special night aimed at spurring action on a range of local and national civil rights issues.
The concert will be held Saturday, August 11th at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY, and feature performances by Maxwell, Fantasia, DVSN and Jazmine Sullivan, with additional guest performances and organizations to be announced.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday, April 21 at 10AM ET here: http://axs.com/events/353240/maxwell-tickets
Maxwell says of his goals for the event: “There has never been a better or more important time to stand up and speak for those whose voices can’t be heard. I am inspired by the lives of Harry Belafonte, Paul Robeson and Nelson Mandela and aim to bring attention to issues such as women’s rights, the disproportionate incarceration of African American men in America, the deplorable situation in Puerto Rico and many others.I will have more details to share in the coming weeks about organizations and other like-minded performers who will come together with me for this special evening.”
A portion of the proceeds from “Black Summer Night For Social Justice” will go to Me Too (https://metoomvmt.org/), Southern Poverty Law Center (https://www.splcenter.org ) and additional organizations to be announced.
