Description

Chene Park Detroit: Friday August 12, ERYKAH BADU Grammy Award winning artist and activists used her musical genius to raise awareness to help rape victims receive justice. Her goal was to pay for all the city's untested rape kits. Partnered with Right Productions Incorporated, the concert is set to raise $50,000 toward the cost of 11,341 rape kits found untested in the city seven years ago. About $5 from each ticket goes toward the cause and about 10,000 have now been paid for. The African-American 490 Challenge of the group Enough SAID says they're trying to raise about $300,000 more to pay for the rest. The 490 stands for the $490 dollars it costs to process one of the kits. Her performance consisted of a melody of old and new material that entertained the packed house of old and new schoolers.
