Youth Peace Rally Pittsburgh 2009
A crowd gathered in Market Square on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon for the MGR Youth Peace Rally (remember?). What you see above is one of the many musical, poetic and oratorical performances spread out over a program that lasted well over three hours.
Young people clad in red t-shirts, purple t-shirts, yellow t-shirts -- whole discrete lineups of a dozen or more children from different sections of town -- were ushered on stage, through green rooms, and back out into the audience like clockwork. Some adults too.
If anyone can provide the names of these particular artists, by all means please do! More video of this event will be appearing randomly on YouTube.
