Proceeds from Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL’s May 10 RALLY 4 PEACE concert at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, will be donated to the NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) to help Baltimore youth. Additionally, funds will go to the City of Baltimore’s YouthWorks Program, through the Baltimore City Foundation. Proceeds will also go to support OneBaltimore.
The NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) NAACP-ACT-SO is a yearlong achievement program. It is designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students. ACT-SO provides a forum through which youth of African descent demonstrate academic, artistic, leadership and scientific prowess and expertise. They thereby gain the same recognition often only reserved for entertainers and athletes.
