Emmanuel Jal at Blair High School

$1,305 of $1,050 goal

Raised by 23 people in 2 months
Blair High School's International Human Rights class is raising funds to bring Emmanuel Jal to perform for and work with our students at the end of February 2017.  Jal is a former child soldier from South Sudan.  Through unimaginable struggles, he managed to survive and go on to emerge as a recording artist, achieving worldwide acclaim for his unique style of hip hop with its message of peace and reconciliation borne out of his personal experiences.  Jal is currently touring schools around the world to share music and his story in a quest to engage and empower young people as they become active global citizens.  Check out Jal's song "We Want Peace" and help us bring him to our school.    Questions?  Contact Anne Manuel (International Human Rights teacher).
