Common And The Roots To Headline Lynching Memorial Concert

Common and The Roots will pay tribute to thousands of murdered African-Americans.

(AllHipHop News) Usher, Common and The Roots are to perform at the launch of a memorial to African-American victims of lynching.

The stars will hit the stage to mark the opening of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice at the Riverwalk Amphitheater in Montgomery, Alabama next month on April 27.

Bluesman Gary Clark, Jr., Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard, and Kirk Franklin will also be part of the gig, dubbed the Concert for Peace & Justice.

The memorial will be located on a hill above Montgomery where lynchings were once frequent.

Officials at the Equal Justice Initiative, who have organized the concert, have documented more than 4,000 instances of African-American men, women, and children being hanged, shot, drowned or beaten to death by white lynch mobs between 1877 and 1950.

Hi. I loved your article. It is very well written. I am a layman in the area of nutrition and most of my knowledge is based on internet searches. I have herpes 2. Recently a vegan friend suggested that I could cure herpes 2 on a vegan diet. Funny thing is, a couple of years ago I was asked to cut out on milk by a nutritionist and I did. Of course I did not go full vegan but ever since an infant, I always thrived on milk. but i still say God bless Dr. SANDY for his marvelous work in my life, I and my friends was diagnosed of herpes 2 since 2015 and I was taking my medications, I wasn't satisfied i needed to get the HERPES out of my system, I searched about some possible cure for herpes 2, i saw a comment about Dr. SANDY how he cured HERPES with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health and my friends, he sent me the medicine through UPS SPEED POST. we took the medicine as prescribed by him and 14 days later we was cured from HERPES, and he told me he can cure this..and he told me he can cure some of this illness:::
1 Cancer herbal medicine
