On Saturday April 3rd, 2021, five of Philadelphia’s finest musicians will be gathering virtually to perform “ROCK FOR REPARATIONS”, a zoom concert Reparations Challenge organized by Mary Alicia. Mary is a singer-songwriter/pianist as well as a member of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, who along with these other talented musicians will all perform their music and use their voices to raise resources in this benefit concert for the Black Power Blueprint. The Black Power Blueprint is an anti-gentrification project based in St. Louis, MO which is building self-determination and economic development projects by and for the black community. Mary’s goal is to raise $400 with this concert.
