On Friday, December 14, 2012 a diverse group of people from the music community, in the United States and Canada, will gather at the Beacon Theater, in NYC to sing for freedom for a man who has been locked away since the tumultuous days of the early seventies and the violence at Wounded Knee and Oglala, South Dakota. Many around the world question whether he has received justice.
This concert is a cross-cultural event meant to bring awareness to the 37 year long ordeal of Native American Activist Leonard Peltier. Pete Seeger says it is the blessing he’s been waiting for. The chance to gather with those he’s invited to participate has been a long time coming. Joining forces with Civil Rights icon Harry Belafonte, the two have invited artists including Jackson Browne, Canadian Hall of Fame folk artist, Bruce Cockburn, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, Native American singers Bill Miller and Jennifer Kreisberg and others.
The line-up features:
Rubin “Hurricane” Carter
