Program Rescheduled: Due to the coronavirus public health emergency, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum will be closed to the public until further notice.

Award-winning musician and Emerson College artist-in-residence Toshi Reagon appears in conversation with the Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, founding pastor of the New Roots AME Church. Join us for this discussion on how the belief systems that define and maintain our societies impact the planet and influence our survival. Co-presented in conjunction with the citywide read of Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower and in association with ArtsEmerson, New Roots Church and the Boston Public Library.
