Deeper Than The Skin (Greg Greenway & Reggie Harris) – A Musical Presentation on Race – Live-Stream Concert
November 19, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“This is Deeper Than the Skin.”
The presentation begins with a song followed by another song … that moves into a poem and then an invitation.
This is not just an evening of talk.
This is not just a concert of songs that just entertain.
Deeper Than the Skin is an experience of singing and listening – of experiencing a connection so deep that it makes you laugh, smile, cry and reconsider what you know about our history. It’s an invitation to open your heart and your mind to a story of shared humanity that resonates with your own.
Two friends… one Black, one White… one from the North… one from the South! Musicians, storytellers, students of history and world travelers, born three days apart! Two separate narratives forged into one powerful friendship aimed at finding common ground and helping others to do the same.
Deeper Than the Skin brings together a remarkable journey that started 30 years ago and is now offering hope to people all over the nation. It’s a presentation that ends with an open dialogue that moves the audience from emotion into action – that gives voice and direction to the question “What can I do?”
Deeper Than the Skin is an interactive, engaging invitation to take a step into a new reality. It’s an affirmation of the notion that a more perfect union begins… with us!
Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway have a unique story. Born three days apart, ancestry flowing through the same portal of history – Richmond, Virginia – they are on a pilgrimage together – one that began three decades ago. The racial divisions that are the reality of America started them in two different worlds, but the amazing bonds of music, respect, admiration and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.
