ABOUT:

In honor of Juneteenth, First Parish of Sudbury, First Parish in Framingham, and First Parish in Wayland, are thrilled to bring you Deeper Than the Skin, with Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway.

Deeper Than the Skin is a musical presentation on race, 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 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!
