Recipients Of Donations From Prince’s Concert Announced

The proceeds from Prince’s “Rally 4 Peace” concert last month will go to the NACCP and two city programs, according to a news release sent by the entertainer’s publicist.

The Baltimore Sun reports the NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics and the city’s YouthWorks and OneBaltimore programs will get the money. The amount of money to be donated wasn’t disclosed.

On May 10, Prince performed a wide range of hits and his new song, “Baltimore,” a protest anthem for the death of Freddie Gray, who died April 19, a week after he suffered a spinal injury after being arrested and transported without a seatbelt by Baltimore police.
