A Musical Presentation on Race
“This is Deeper Than the Skin”

that moves into a poem and then… an invitation.
This is not just another evening of talk.
This is not just a concert of songs that just entertain.

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.

Deeper Than the Skin brings together a remarkable journey that started 30

can I do?”

a new reality. It’s an affirmation of the notion that a more perfect union
begins…. with us!
