In addition to his work in music and film, Legend is also well known for his philanthropic work in education and criminal justice reform. He founded #FREEAMERICA, a campaign designed to change the national conversation of our country’s misguided policies and to make a change in America’s criminal justice system. Joining Legend in conversation is six-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and actress, Sara Bareilles. Together they will talk about the different mediums in which they work and how music is the thread that ties all of their work together.
