Concert & Conversation – Garth Hewitt
Join us for a special event to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Indiana Center for Middle East Peace will host balladeer, human rights activist, and Anglican priest, Garth Hewitt, for a Zoom Concert & Conversation.
Garth is an Honorary Canon of St. George's Anglican Cathedral in East Jerusalem and the founder of Amos Trust, a British human rights organization with partners in Palestine, South Africa, Nicaragua, Burundi, India, and Tanzania. He was instrumental in the development of the Greenbelt Festival in the UK into a celebration of the arts, faith, and justice.
A friend and protege of Sir Cliff Richard, he has sung throughout the world, from St. Paul's Cathedral to a Bolivian maximum security prison, from the Grand Ole Opry to the foot of the apartheid wall in Bethlehem. Garth has recorded more than 40 albums highlighting the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, the plight of Dalits in India, and for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. His latest albums are My Name is Palestine, and Songs of the Fifth Gospel.
In 1988 he was named International Artist of the Year at the Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards in Nashville.
