Their story

Reggie and Greg were born three days apart, ancestry flowing through the same portal of history—Richmond, VA. They are on a pilgrimage together, one that began more than thirty years ago. Though the racial divisions that are the reality in America started them in two different worlds, the amazing power of music, respect, admiration, and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.

Who they ARE

Reggie Harris is the Music Education Director of the Living Legacy Project of the UUA, co-leading annual tours through the hallowed Civil Rights Grounds of the South. He is a Woodrow Wilson Scholar, and half of the well-known folk duo, Kim and Reggie Harris. He has led hundreds of programs on Race and Social Justice.

Greg Greenway, founding member of the musical group Brother Sun, was a part of the planning committee of Marching in the Arc of Justice, the UU conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Selma Voting Rights Action. For two years, he had the honor of having his song, “Rosa Parks” play when rosaparks.com opened. Greg and Brother Sun led his song, “What Must Be Done” before thousands of UUs at the opening service of the General Assembly in Providence, RI.

Together and individually, Reggie and Greg have brought the issues of Race to the hearts of audiences across North America.

Where Do We Go from Here?

The work of justice making is long and difficult. Together, Greg and Reggie share not only a story of overcoming, but provide a living, breathing embodiment of celebration, creative resistance, and joy, and their fluent stories and outstanding musicianship make it contagious! Both are committed to inspiring people, and encouraging others to take that step beyond the comfort zone. As they exemplify what is possible when people of good will reach in love across the racial divide, they encourage others to build the relationships that are, in the end, a path to healing.

NOW! What better time can there be to build bridges of love, joy, hope, and respect?
