MORE DETAILS: Liz Berlin of Rusted Root and jazz singer Phat Man Dee recently created an outstanding collection of social justice songs. Recognizing the important role artists have in contributing to the global choir of change, the JCC is hosting Phat Man Dee and Liz Berlin: Shine the Light with Social Justice Disco.

The concert is a musical collaboration of jazz, rock, gospel, poetry, dance, hip hop, and disco with special guests Pastor Deryck Tines and the Lemington Gospel Chorale, Ezra Smith and Christina Springer, Johnny Creed Coe, SunBear Coe, and Miguel Sague Jr. They’ll perform original and legendary songs including I Will Survive, Staying Alive, I Can’t Breathe, Have You Been to Jail for Justice?, and many more.

The Shine the Light with Social Justice Disco concert at the JCC celebrates Man Dee’s and Berlin’s commitment to making our world a better place and anticipates their winter 2018 Social Justice for Disco CD release. The concert is also a program in conjunction with the American Jewish Museum’s exhibition, Out of Many: Stories of Migration, a photography exhibit that highlights the role that immigration and migration have played in the formation of our identity and culture, and in sustaining our economy.

Working to redefine the term neighbor from a geographic term to a moral concept, Shine the Light with Social Justice Disco and Out of Many: Stories of Migration express artistically the JCC’s Center for Loving Kindness and Civic Engagement's mission to strengthen the fabric of community by amplifying the long held values of Love Your Neighbor as yourself and Do not stand idle while your neighbor bleeds.
