The Equal Justice Initiative provided the following description about the concert:
The Concert for Peace and Justice will be the culminating celebration to the opening of two new cultural spaces in Montgomery, AL: The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum. People from across the country and beyond will come together to enjoy grammy award-winning musical performances and inspirational messages from national figures. The Equal Justice Initiative provides free legal representation to men, women, and children who have been denied fair and just treatment in the criminal justice system, and has created these cultural spaces to advance equality and fair treatment in America. On this night, we will all come together in solidarity to celebrate and mark this special moment, as we work together toward a future that is more just for all people.
