Race and Song: A Musical Conversation

On Wednesday, July 31 at 1:00 pm at the Senior Center, join us for this special and important event. This program is generously co-sponsored by The Brookline Senior Center, The Brookline Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Community Relations, Hebrew SeniorLife | Center Communities of Brookline, Goddard House Assisted Living & Memory Support, The Public Library of Brookline, and Brookline Department of Public Health and Human Services. Race and Song was born in 2020 out of a deep bond and nearly 30-year friendship between veteran musicians and storytelling troubadours Reggie Harris and Alastair Moock. Together in musical conversation, the two explore complex issues of race, class, gender, and history, framing their lived experiences through music for a program as entertaining as it is educational.

One of Alastair and Reggie’s greatest strengths as a duo is their ability to meet audiences where they are, adapting their conversation and musical repertoire for a wide range of ages and experiences. For adults wanting to deepen their understanding of antiracism and get more comfortable talking about
complex subjects, Race and Song invites them to listen, learn, and engage. Reggie and Alastair
have performed together at theaters, arts centers, houses of worship, libraries, senior centers, and universities nationwide, modeling what productive interracial conversations about race can look like while swapping tunes and inviting audience participation in a welcoming and non-judgmental atmosphere.
