Questlove, Grimes, Rakim, Neko Case, and more will join the “artist table” for the march and its “sister events.”
“I am honored to join this critical movement to bring justice and equality to all,” Monae said in a statement. “Music has always been a powerful tool for galvanizing unity and I believe that singing and standing together, our voices will be stronger than any force that tries to repress us.”
The march’s Facebook page shows that over 200K people are aiming to march, while 50 to 70K people are planning to march in NYC and LA. There will also be Women’s Marches in London and across the UK.
