The event’s goal is to promote and raise awareness about important human rights issues.

Santana is one of the headliners of the festival, which also will include performances by Dave Matthews, John Legend, comedian Chris Rock, actor/singer Jamie Foxx, Public Enemy and rappers T.I., Common and Macklemore. In addition, the event will give attendees the chance interact with activist and “thought-leaders” in order to learn about various social justice and human-rights issues.

The festival is being organized by the Sankofa.org, which activist/entertainer Harry Belafonte established in 2013 as a platform for artists and community leaders could work together to promote discussion on important issues.
