A benefit concert featuring new age artists, spoken word, folk, and other types of music will be held Friday, Sept. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Bistro to raise funds for the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI).

Local chapters of NCBI, including George Mason, Northern Virginia Community College, and Washington, D.C., chapters, will host the night of music, which features the Philadelphia neo-soul band, Tangible Truth, and the Sassy Smartgrrrl Rock of Rebecca Walter, associate director of the Women’s Studies Research and Resource Center. Other performances include international drumming, political folk music, spoken word, rhythm and blues, and Latin rock. A midnight breakfast buffet and other refreshments will be available. Door prizes, CDs, and other merchandise will be raffled off throughout the evening.

The George Mason and Northern Virginia NCBI chapters are dedicated to ending mistreatment based on nationality, race, class, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, job, or life circumstances.

Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for students and youth and $8 for community members and George Mason faculty and staff. The event is sponsored by George Mason’s Multicultural Research and Resource Center, University Life, and First Fridays. For more information, click here or e-mail
