The event will also commemorate the Hollywood Bowl’s 100th anniversary and include The Re-Collective Orchestra, a 68-piece all-Black symphony orchestra, marking the first time an all-Black symphony has performed in the Hollywood Bowl. Additionally, Grammy Award-winning writer Adam Blackstone and The Roots co-founder and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Questlove will serve as the evening’s Musical Directors.

“Our commitment to amplifying Black voices and those of other marginalized groups is paramount to remaining the worldwide leader in news,” said Johnita P. Due, SVP and Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer for CNN Worldwide. “Through musical performances and thoughtful storytelling we will embody the excellence and resilience of the Black community in the continued pursuit for freedom and social justice.”

“This is the most important event we’ve ever produced at Live Nation Urban,” said Live Nation Urban President Shawn Gee. “It’s a moment to celebrate and reflect on black independence and the black experience. It’s also a moment to raise awareness and shine light on the miles we still need to travel to true equity. We hope to see you there.”
