In an evening of engaging music and conversation with the audience, two descendants of a Confederate enslaver, one Black and one white, share their story and discuss what it was like to discover each other’s deeply held feelings, pain, and hope. Presenting are folk singer and social activist Reggie Harris and longtime educator Wallis Wickham Raemer. To underscore their messages and experience, Harris, a prominent interpreter of the use of music in historical movements for social change, sings his stirring, original songs accompanied by guitar. The event will include ASL interpretation.
