*The money generated from Prince’s “Rally 4 Peace” concert in Baltimore last month will go to the NACCP and two city programs, according to a news release sent by his rep.
Specifically, the money will go to the NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics and the city’s YouthWorks and OneBaltimore programs, according to The Baltimore Sun. The amount of money to be donated was not disclosed.
On May 10, Prince performed a bunch of his classics as well as his new song, “Baltimore,” a protest anthem for Freddie Gray, who died April 19, a week after he suffered a spinal injury while being transported unrestrained by Baltimore police.
On May 7, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced the OneBaltimore initiative as an effort to address the city’s problems.
