Event description
A Jazz Tribute for Keith LaMar, a wrongfully convicted death row prisoner in Ohio and his fight for justice

About this Event

Musicians United NYC presents “Freedom First,” a jazz tribute to Keith LaMar, a wrongfully convicted death row prisoner in Ohio.

Keith is scheduled to be executed on November 16, 2023 even though he has maintained his innocence for nearly three decades and illegitimate tactics from a corrupt and racist prosecutor undermines the reliability of his conviction.

“Freedom First” intends to highlight racialized injustice, because the “legal” lynching of Black lives must end.

Keith is still with us — he’s still breathing — and we must make his life matter.

Music has always been an essential part of Keith's life - join us to hear Musicians United play Keith's favorite jazz pieces. See here for a clip from our August concert.

Please share and spread the word - it's going to be a powerful demonstration of love and unity.

Learn more about Keith's case and donate to his legal fight at www.keithlamar.org, and follow him at @justiceforkeithlamar.

**PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION CHANGE TO TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK**

**Would recommend bringing blankets and towels to sit on!**
