FocusMusic and the Sandy Spring Museum are excited and proud to launch our collaborative relationship with Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway’s presentation of “Deeper Than the Skin”. Sandy Spring, founded by Quakers, was a station along the Underground Railway. A steward of the area’s rich legacy for over 40 years, the Museum has evolved as a cultural arts center, supporting the arts, promoting education and mirroring Focus’ mutual values of community, education, collaboration and inclusion.
“Deeper Than The Skin is an absolutely amazing experience. Not a performance (although these are two fine performers) but an experience. If you are anywhere within reach of this, don’t miss it.”
-Selma Civil Rights activist Rev. Gordon Gibson, author of Southern Witness, Knoxville, TN
Celebrating and promoting justice and equality, “Deeper Than the Skin” is the story of a decades-long friendship that merged disparate backgrounds of black/white, North/South to discover common ground and inspire others to do the same. Reggie and Greg are committed to reaching across the racial divide with words and music to promote, inspire and celebrate justice and equality.
“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!
