Toshi Reagon is a talented and versatile singer, composer, and musician with a profound ear for sonic Americana—from folk to funk, from blues to rock. She has performed in venues from Carnegie Hall and the Paris Opera House to music festivals and local clubs, and collaborated with many well-known artists.
Toshi will be presenting excerpts from the opera Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower, which she created with her mother Bernice Johnson Reagon. She will also discuss the role of the artist in times of crisis, including the pandemic, the climate crisis, and the ongoing struggle for racial and social justice. The event will be moderated by Tacoma Dean Marcia Tate Arunga. 

This program is a collaboration between Evergreen’s Climate Justice & Resilience Series,
Evergreen Tacoma, and Inclusive Excellence & Student Success, with thanks to donors to the Willi Unsoeld Seminar Fund at The Evergreen State College Foundation.
