BLP used the power of music to call attention to peace, denouncing violence in all its forms. About 28 different Artists musicians from about 20 different countries came together using their talent to cry for peace. This project was endorsed by the former Mayor Anisse Parker of Houston. BLP will continue to use music as a tool for advocacy when together with other partners organized the first ever Diaspora response to the deadly Ebola virus which hit West Africa in 2014.
