PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Community activist groups have organized concert to honor the life of Antwon Rose II, the 17-year-old fatally shot by an East Pittsburgh Police Officer last June.
It will feature local rappers such as Benji and Live From The City. Tye Clarke with 1Hood Media tells KDKA Radio:
“All of the proceeds from the tickets sales are going to go to Antwon’s family and then we’ll also be accepting additional donation on site and one of our artists Brittney Chantele will be doing live painting as well and she will be auctioning that off,” said Clarke.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online. Concert starts at 7 at the Ace Hotel in East Liberty.
The event will be hosted by local activist and artist Jasiri X.
