Rock Against Racism is a campaign that was set up in the United Kingdom in 1976. The campaign was made in response to growing racial tension as well as the growth of white nationalist movements within the U.K. The campaign uses different types of music, such as rock, pop, and punk to help discourage youths from embracing racist mentalities. The campaign has had numerous events across the globe, including the United States. On June 9, 1979 a Rock Against Racism concert was held in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL.
