You’re invited to join Tidal, the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), various musical performers, and influential guests as they commemorate the opening of America’s first lynching memorial and museum on April 27.
EJI’s collaboration with Tidal will help educate the world about racial terror in America as the music streaming app will broadcast The Concert of Peace and Justice for free via – TIDAL.com/EJI.
Located in Montgomery, Alabama, The National Memorial for Peace and Justice acknowledges the 4400 plus African American men, women, and children that were brutally mistreated by white mobs between 1877 and 1950.
The Legacy Museum will include interactive media, sculpture, videography, and exhibits. All the art is focused on depicting the sights and sounds of the domestic slave trade, racial terrorism, the Jim Crow South, and the American prison system.
“It’s time to end the silence.”
EJI Director Bryan Stevenson spoke on the Tidal collaboration and what he hopes to accomplish by live streaming the event. He said,
“The EJI is excited to partner with TIDAL to bring this event to a global audience… The issues America is facing today are deeply rooted in a history that is familiar to so many worldwide. We’re hopeful that bringing this conversation globally will inspire a conversation that will lead to a better future.”
