The platform advocating for economic and social justice for Black Americans will be hosted by Yvonne Orji.
Insecure star Yvonne Orji will host Friday's (Sept. 25) "Community Concert & Conversation" event featuring performances and appearances by Nelly, StaySolidRocky, 24kGoldn, Rileyy Lanez and Fivio Foreign. The virtual gathering -- a collaboration between Columbia Records and the National Urban League -- is described as a platform created to advocate for the "economic and social justice of Black Americans and other minority communities and to raise awareness of the disproportionate rate at which COVID-19 continues to impact these communities."
It will stream live on Columbia Records' YouTube page at 8:30 p.m. ET, building on the label's existing social justice efforts to foster equal rights and take action against discrimination. “Artists, particularly musical artists, have played a vital role in shaping social justice and civil rights since our nation’s founding,” said Marc H. Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League in a statement. “We’re honored to join Sony and Columbia Records in upholding this distinguished legacy, and grateful to Visa for its ongoing support. We look forward to a dynamic and productive dialogue.”
