Divah Talk #5: Black Women We Need to Do Better

Will.I.am Links With Hillary Clinton To Produce Rap Concert In China


Black Eyed Peas frontman will.I.am recently met with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in Washington DC, where it was announced that the rapper will direct a concert in Beijing later this year, to highlight the importance of educational and cultural ties between the United States and China.

The concert will celebrate US–China educational and cultural exchanges, with a performance by will.I.am and other American and Chinese pop stars, who will support President Obama's "100,000 Strong Initiative."

President Obama launched the “100,000 Strong Initiative” in May of 2010. The program aims to dramatically increase and diversify the number of American students studying in China.

“In order to become responsible global citizens, young people need to experience the world around them,” will.i.am said. “Kids from underserved communities rarely have the opportunity to study and travel abroad, and we want to change that. We must make sure that American students have the cultural awareness and skills necessary to succeed in a global economy.”

The concert is being organized by Americans Promoting Study Abroad, which is a US-based nonprofit organization offering full scholarships to public high school students for language and cultural studies in China.

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to support and operate programs abroad for underserved American students studying in China.
