New York’s Peace Poets to Perform at Ohio City Masonic Arts Center on Eve of RNC

Posted By on Thu, Jul 14, 2016 at 9:05 AM

Last year, local activists, human rights organizations, artists and community groups booked the New York City-based Peace Poets to perform a local benefit concert that raised money for “those seeking justice for Tamir Rice and Tanisha Anderson, among others who have been killed by police officers around the country.”

The Peace Poets will return to town on the eve of the Republican National Convention. According to a press release, “The performance, entitled 'The People’s Mic: Word Up to the Resistance,' seeks to advocate for life, build community in the social movement, and put music before hate.”

The concert will include an open mic segment that will allow patrons to “speak their ‘peace.’” The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Sunday at the Ohio City Masonic Arts Center. Admission is a $10 donation.
