MSU PeaceJam hosts concert to discuss terrorism, injustice
Students and family members gathered in the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities Auditorium for the first ever MSU PeaceJam Jam, an event organized by the activist group MSU PeaceJam and arts and humanities sophomore Charlie Burg.
“I had the idea to bring music into the mix,” Burg said in a previous State News article. “When I first joined the group a few months ago, I saw the word 'jam' (and) I thought it had to do with music, when it actually didn’t. So I took the idea and made it into a PeaceJam Jam.”
The event's theme focused on societal injustice and terrorism, a topic explored by the night's dozen or so performances. Most performers were guitar or piano accompanied singers, with a couple spoken poems and raps thrown in as well.
