Dev Hynes, Doja Cat, and more will perform in Black Power Live stream

Kamasi Washington, Denzel Curry, and a range of poets and activists will also make virtual appearances during the charity event

This weekend (June 27) an event featuring performances from various musicians and poets, Black Power Live, is set to stream live on Twitch. 

Hosted by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, the event is intended as “a celebration of the incredible work done by organizers and activists around the world, and will be a chance to reflect, regroup and talk about next steps”.

Black Power Live’s lineup boasts some big names, too, including Doja Cat and Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), who will perform “on solo piano”.

Kamasi Washington is slated to make an appearance alongside Denzel Curry, as well as serpentwithfeet, while poets and activists such as Emma Gonzalez are also going to be taking the virtual stage.

Funds raised from the Twitch stream, meanwhile, will benefit organisations involved in current and ongoing anti-racism efforts, such as Crenshaw Dairy Mart, Sankofa, Transgender Law Center, Trap Heals, and Black Men Build.

View the full lineup below, and watch on Twitch June 27 (or early June 28, in the UK).
