Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Jackson Browne and More to Play Benefit for Activist in NYC

Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Jackson Browne and more will play a concert to bring attention to the struggle of Native American activist Leonard Peltier. The event will take place at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Friday, December 14. Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 7 and can be purchased here. Former boxing champion Rubin “Hurricane” Carter will also make an appearance at the concert. Carter was wrongfully convicted of a triple murder in 1966, and was released from prison in 1985 after years of support from various musicians, including Bob Dylan (who wrote his song “Hurricane” about Carter).

Leonard Peltier was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of murdering two FBI agents during a conflict on the Pine River Indian Reservation in 1975. His case has been the subject of controversy and a number of musicians have taken up his cause, including Rage Against the Machine and U2.
