The Parable Path is Toshi Reagon’s framework for community organizing through
artistic engagement, connected to her musical adaptation of Octavia E. Butler’s “Parable
of the Sower.” See the performances March 30-April 2 at the Pittsburgh Playhouse.

and Archive Project, City of Asylum, Dreams of Hope, Equity | Impact Center, Greater
