Amiri Baraka: Perspectives on Music and Race
Note from the author: I would like to point out that there are a number of various definitions of "racism" and the list is growing. Rather than try to explain all the vast interpretations and definitions, which is not the intent of the paper, I selected one definition to use as a point of reference. Granted, the reader may come from a different reference point.
I would also like to thank Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo for sharing her time and thoughts in conversation on this paper and topic. Though we may not agree on the definition of racism and certain related aspects of it, I think we agree that discourse on this topic is of utmost importance.
"Spiritual transformation through music, empathy and understanding..."
Lloyd Peterson is the author of the book, Music and the Creative Spirit and the future publication, Wisdom Through Music.
