Jerry Leggett:  Musician and Peacebuilder

Leggett's acoustic musical roots stretch back to the late 1960's when he bought a $13 folk guitar and learned his first Bob Dylan song. Through the years he has maintained that essential quality of a guitar strumming, street-singing balladeer even as his musical presentation has become a more eclectic mix of pulsating rock and jazz formats.

Leggett has consistently supported efforts to link music entertainment with raising funds and awareness for a more just and healthy planet. As a motivational speaker and peace educator, he has appeared widely across the U.S.

As Executive Director of the Dayton International Peace Museum from 2014 to December 31. 2016, Jerry curated two major exhibits, "Quilting the Golden Rule," and "The Peace Corps: 54 Years of Global Service." He also oversaw the development of a major new exhibit on Peace Heroes and four Peace Hero Walk Around the World events in 3 states that raised more than $200,000 to promote local peace literacy initiatives.
