On Friday, March 31, area congregations and civic organizations throughout the Brattleboro area are coming together to support "Let Justice Roll Down," a concert and sing-along at Guilford Community Church, 38 Church Drive in Guilford. The concert will provide an opportunity for many across the valley to stand together for the rights of those facing serious threats to their safety, rights and dignity. This event is a benefit for Black Lives Matter Vermont and the Root Social Justice Center.
The concert will feature Lea Gilmore, a blues-gospel singer and civic activist. She has lent her voice, literally and figuratively, to advocacy for the underserved of the world for many years. Essence Magazine named her one of the "25 Women Shaping the World" in 2005. She has worked tirelessly to advance racial justice and bridge divides in her native Baltimore and around the world. Accompanying Lea will be award winning blues pianist and vocalist Professor Louie.
