What if Jesus were Black? How would that change the narrative behind his story, and the music that has been written about him? Garrett unpacks this with Adrian Dunn, who's the composer behind a new work called "Black Messiah". Scott shares his thoughts on a new Mozart video game, the music of Michael Abels, and helps Garrett identify the joint, very intentional Euro-centricity that is foundational to America's understanding of Christmas and so-called classical music. This opus is dedicated to the incredible work of arts administrator and arts activist, Quanice Floyd.
