‘Deeper than the Skin’ free concert Dec. 9 at Unitarian Fellowship

NEWS RELEASE

Deeper Than The Skin, a musical presentation on Race in America by recording artists Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway, will be held at 4 P.M. on Saturday, December 9, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach. The presentation will be interactive and there will be time at the end for discussion. Admission is free and no tickets are required. Freewill offerings will be accepted

Reggie and Greg have a unique story – born three days apart, with ancestry flowing through the same portal of history, Richmond, VA. 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, mutual respect, sheer admiration, and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.

Their stories together form the quintessential American story. The music that flowed from their experiences is powered by unadorned truth, raw and riveting, beautiful and uplifting. Echoing Gandhi, they believe that in telling our truths, we are able to rise up from the past and build bridges to each other and the future.

Reggie Harris is a Woodrow Wilson Scholar and the Music Education Director of the Living Legacy Project of the Unitarian Universalist Association, leading tours through the historic sites of the Civil Rights movement in the South. He has been affiliated with the John F Kennedy Center’s Partners in Education program for over two decades, 

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located on the southeast corner of 27th Avenue and 16th Street. It has easy parking and is handicap accessible.

  1. Thanks for running this. I had the opportunity to see them recently in New Orleans. They are talented musicians that combine original music with powerful accounts of their experiences and reflections on the status of race relations. An enjoyable and enriching experience!
