Event Details

Reggie Harris, internationally-known performer, lecturer and cultural ambassador, will be presenting Songs of the Underground Railroad on the Looking for Lincoln Facebook and YouTube Channels.  
Harris will perform the music of the Underground Railroad and discuss the impact of this historic route to freedom. As a descendent of a black enslaved woman and her white master from Lincoln’s time, Harris has spent his life engaged in bridging racial divides, and helping to bring an understanding of justice, similar to those issues which stoked the US Civil War. The show will be hosted by musician and folklorist Chris Vallillo.  
These programs are free and broadcast live on Looking for Lincoln’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, and will end with a question and answer session with the virtual audience. 
Looking for Lincoln Conversations is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
