Kim and Reggie HarrisThe folk duo’s website offers a wealth of information about their CDs, downloads and programs celebrating black history. The Steal Away and Get on Board CDs grew from their wonderful shows that bring the time of the Underground Railroad to life. They also offer new and traditional songs of inspiration with classroom activities.

I’m Gonna Let It ShineBill Harley’s legendary CD project includes Kim and Reggie along with Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer and other kindie voices raised in songs of the modern civil rights movement. Classroom resources are available.
