EVENT: YWCA to “Rock Away Racism”


Rock Away Racism 
Thursday, Feb. 23
6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Hard Rock Hotel
230 N. Michigan Ave.

Hosted by the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s Future Leaders Council

The concert event is focused on celebrating Chicago’s diversity through music and will feature a variety of artists, including Endiskize, Jeff Goodwin & Jamiah ‘On Fire’ & The Red Machine & DJ Madrid. Katrina Lynn of Savvy Talk radio will be the hostess of the event.

Through Rock Away Racism, the YWCA honors Black History Month and those who worked toward racial and social justice, while also spotlighting an issue that continues to impact our society today. “As an organization committed to the elimination of racism, the YWCA works to raise awareness through many vehicles,” said Christine Bork, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago CEO. “Music has historically been used to overcome or respond to prejudice and intolerance, and helps us recognize our similarities and appreciate our differences.”

General admission for the event is $35.00 (VIP admission is also available). To purchase tickets or for more information about Rock Away Racism, please visit www.ywcachicago.org.
