Deeper Than the Skin is a conversation about race in story and song, featuring Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway: two friends, one Black and one White, one from the North and one from the South. They are musicians, storytellers, students of history and world travelers, born 3 days apart. Two separate narratives forged into one powerful story aimed at finding common ground and helping others to do the same. 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 mind to a story of shared humanity that resonates with your own.
