A Concert to Benefit Yida Refugee Camp
“Hunger is a Civil Rights Issue”, – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King
The Chapel was alive last Saturday night at our benefit concert to help raise awareness and money for the Yida Refugee Camp in Sudan. Attended by over 100 people, students from some of Tufts a cappella groups including the Jackson Jills, Ladies of Essence, and S-Factor, as well as soloist Barbara Florvil and Fletcher School student Patrick Kabanda, gave beautiful, heartfelt and moving performances. The Rev. Dr. Gloria White-Hammond, humanitarian and a Sudan activist, spoke to us and gave us a clear window in the life of a Sudanian refugee. Her words were inspirational and sobering.
The event was co-sponsored by The Africana Center, The Catholic, Protestant, and Muslim Chaplains, The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, The Granoff Family Hillel Center, The Office of Intercultural & Social Identities Program, The Peace & Justice, Studies Program, and The Tisch College of Active Citizenship and Public Service.
We are very thankful for all the people who participated in making this concert a success where we raised $3000.
