Quanice Floyd

Opus 14 - Go-Go No-No

The physical and cultural colonization of the land now called America has only continued since the first Europeans arrived, and Quanice Floyd has dedicated her career to quelling it. The music-teacher-turned-arts-administrator explores this topic with Garrett, drawing connections between the destruction of indigenous communities to the violent gentrification plaguing communities of color today. She also talks about integrating musical styles like ‘Go-Go’ into her classroom, and how it got her into hot water. In the prelude, Garrett and Scott recount their relationships with indigenous education, and Garrett addresses his latest social media drama.
