Free the Slaves, an organization dedicated to bringing awareness of modern slavery in view of the general population, hosts their annual Freedom Awards Sunday, November 7th, at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. The event will kick off at 5pm with the highest honor being presented to those who fight the battle against modern day slavery. Honorees include musicians, actors, business and civic leaders, authors and activists; all who have chosen to bring awareness to the 27,000,000+ individuals who are part of the current slave trade market of the 21st century. The Freedom Rocks Concert will follow the ceremony for a celebration of hope and progress just outside the Performing Arts Center.
Sir Ken Robinson will host the Freedom Rocks Concert with live performances by Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz, Rickie Byars Beckwith & the Agape International Choir, Rocky Dawuni and String Theory. Michael Bernard
