Christine Gangelhoff challenges the Euro-centric nature of "classical" music by promoting the work of not only Black composers, but Afro-Caribbean composers. She joins Garrett to talk about her experiences as a teacher and performer in the Bahamas, and the album, Tour de Force. Scott shares some of the contemporary classical music that he thinks can help deal with the day to day of 2020, and Garrett recounts one of his own experiences dealing with racism while teaching in the Bahamas.
