Benefit for the Highland Center: Pete Seeger Turns 100!

May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Pete Seeger

Benefit for the Highlander Center: Pete Seeger turns 100!
Community Sing, with Special Guests: Soly Canto, Alisa Amador, Fred Small, Alastair Mook, Dean Stevens, Lorraine and Bennett Hammond and more!

ALL PROCEEDS TO AID IN THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE HIGHLANDER CENTER

You probably heard that The Highlander Center in Tennessee burned down. There was white supremacist graffitti sprayed around the parking lot. This historic gathering place in the struggle for civil rights and human rights is a place of spiritual renewal, organizing and solidarity.

If Pete Seeger were still with us, he would turn 100 on Friday May 3. Pete spent significant time at the Highlander Center, organizing, singing, and breaking bread with the principal figures of the Civil Rights movement.

We will come together and remember Pete, sing his songs, and do our part to rebuild the Highlander Center. Will you join us? www.communitychurchofboston.org. (Donations may be made out to The Community Church of Boston, with The Highlander Center in the memo line).

Suggested Donation: $20+  (Advance Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4213152)
