On episode 1.9 we talk to trumpeter and composer Hannibal Lokumbe, whose compositions tell the stories of ordinary people with the courage and strength to stand up to racism and to fight for social justice. We take a look at two of his oratorios, one inspired by his own family's history and the other by Mrs. Rosa Parks.
Our Deep Cut is James Price Johnson's Yamekraw Rhapsody, composed as a more authentic response to George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
