Solange was among the artists who performed live at the National Museum of African American History and Culture last night, January 19. The Peace Ball event was described by organizers Busboys and Poets as a "gathering to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of the past 4 years," particularly in areas like marriage equality, criminal justice reform, and health care.
