On the last week of the Newseum’s “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics” exhibit, human rights activist Jack Healey talks about working with U2, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel and other music legends to put together some of the biggest benefit concerts in music history.
Over a span of 30 years, Healey organized music and comedy charity concerts designed to raise awareness of human rights abuses across the globe. Called “Mr. Human Rights” by U.S. News and World Report, Healey is the founder of the Human Rights Action Center and for 12 years served as executive director of Amnesty International.
Healey is featured in the Newseum original film “Artists Unite” which looks at the emergence of the rock benefit concert and accompanies the “Louder Than Words” exhibit.
Inside Media programs are made possible with generous support from Kate Headline in honor of her husband Bill Headline, CNN Washington bureau chief from 1983 to 1996.
