Andrea Davis Pinkney is a New York Times-bestselling author whose work recently earned her an invitation to create the libretto for an opera adaptation of "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. She joins Garrett to talk about her life as an author, her experience writing for an opera, and the importance of Black joy in art. Scott offers the story of a church that's paying reparations to local Black institutions, Garrett celebrates reggae-inspired video game music by Nobuo Uematsu, and the guys honor the late Sidney Poitier. For the weekly TRILLOQUY, Garrett and Scott explore the relationship between anti-racism and anti-capitalism.
