About the Artist

Reggie Harris is a musician, storyteller, historian & educator; member of the Kennedy Center's Partnership in Education Program. Steeped in the tradition of African American spirituals, folk, gospel, rock and the music of civil and human rights, Reggie's writing, research, field work and recordings have amassed an amazing repertoire of African-American music, blending spirituals and freedom songs, the old with the new.

The Underground Railroad is one of the most important chapters in American History. This multi-media, engaging and interactive concert of songs, stories and narratives about slavery and the quest for freedom reveals the hope, power and eventually, the triumph that was accomplished by a network of multicultural allies. Through song, story, audience involvement and a multi-media presentation, Music and the Underground Railroad provides an understanding of the secrets and passion of this powerful era.
