Redefy is so excited to host Todd Mack on Tuesday, May 12th, from 3:15-4:00 pm at Princeton Day School in Room 212-213!
Todd Mack (http://www.toddmack.net/) has made a 25 year career as a musician, songwriter, and producer based upon his unwavering belief in the power of music to change the world. He has self-released 7 CDs of his music, produced dozens of album projects by other indie artists, and has toured extensively throughout the United States, Far East, and Middle East.
His organization, Music in Common (http://www.musicincommon.org/), which was originally started as a backyard jam in honor of his friend Danny Pearl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Pearl), the late Wall St. Journal reporter, has blossomed into an internationally touring non-profit with innovative community-building programming. To date, Music in Common has toured to more than 200 communities across the US, Middle East, and Far East. Todd serves as its executive director. A published writer and host of two syndicated radio shows, Todd speaks locally, nationally, and internationally on a wide range of topics related to music and its power to create social change.
Todd Mack has the ability to offer powerful insight into the importance of intersectionality, diversity, and peace and we cannot be more thrilled he is coming to speak. Our mission for 2015 is to reduce racial prejudice and hate within our community and Mr. Mack is the perfect person to speak about why it is so critical that we do so. I believe his life experience as a change-maker, musician, and activist will allow him to profoundly impact our community positively.
On May 12th, Todd Mack will be speaking about the work of Music in Common to bridge divides and deepen understanding between Muslims, Jews, and Christians in the Middle East and the United States, focusing on the annual MiC Youth Summit.
