#BLM Benefit Concert
The Tufts University Social Collective, in collaboration with the Tufts Africana Center is hosting a #BLM Benefit Concert curated and hosted by Oompa and featuring Porsha O and STL GLD, on Saturday, September 26th at 1:14pm.
The concert will last 8 hours and 46 minutes in recognition of the brutal murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others. All proceeds will go to the Tufts Africana Center in hopes of expanding support and services for students at Tufts.
The concert aims to amplify Black and Brown student and local artists as the global community processes through police brutality these communities face regularly in the United States, and will include 5 student and 7 local artists varying from spoken word to original music. The show will be live streamed to Tufts University Social Collective’s YouTube and is open to all.
Donations can be made here, and any contribution over $25 will be thanked with a commemorative t-shirt designed by Tufts undergrad Denzel Oduro and printed by Villeside Customs, a Black owned business in Somerville, MA (photo shown above).
