Many Rivers to Cross Festival

We are very pleased to announce that as part of the Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network, we are an official community partner of the Many Rivers To Cross festival happening in Chattahoochee Hills, Atlanta, GA on October 1-2.  

Many Rivers To Cross is 2016’s most powerful music, art and justice festival with performances by John Legend, Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, Common, TIP, Estelle, Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Aloe Blacc, Jussie Smollett, Goapale, Alice Smith, Macklemore, Public Enemy and more.

Jesse Williams, Cornel West, Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, Sonia Sanchez, Rashad Robinson and many others will bless the crowd with inspiring messages. The weekend will culminate with “Stir It Up”, a two-hour curated presentation by Harry Belafonte giving us a cultural and artistic look at the American black experience then and now.

By utilizing the voice of top artists, celebrities, thought-leaders, activists and advocates, the event will address issues of mass incarceration and criminal justice through the lens of voting rights.


We hope you will join us at the festival.
