Students Plan to Protest R. Kelly Concert

R. Kelly’s scheduled concert this weekend at the University of Texas will be met with a protest from UT ladies who object to his current child pornography charges.

The student organization Feminists of Color United says the main purpose of their planned rally outside Bass Concert Hall is to raise awareness of sexual violence against women of color.

"We're students on this campus and we feel that we would like the university to more carefully scrutinize the people that they bring to campus," Jacqueline Smith of Feminists of Color United said.

Kelly, currently awaiting trial for 14 counts relating to child pornography, is scheduled to hit the stage at 8 p.m. Friday (March 17).

Explaining Kelly’s booking, Performing Arts Center Assistant Director Tim Neece said: "The University of Texas performing arts center is striving to bring the best in art and music in all genres and we're working hard to broaden our audiences and diversify our programming to do that."
