Non-profit organization Why Tuesday? rallied their troops at New York City's Webster Hall last night. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Martin Luther King III provided rousing speeches, and the Roots followed with 40 minutes of music that included everything from Led Zeppelin to their own "The Seed 2.0." Here are our best shots of the Philly band's set. Photos by Nicole Fara Silver
