Conversations that center the experiences and perspectives of Black, Brown, and Indigenous musicians. Decolonizing the Music Room aims "to disrupt the minimization and erasure of non-dominant cultures and identities in the field of music education to build a more equitable future through our work."
This Noise Pop Podcast episode highlights "some of the powerful music that has been released or revived as a direct response to ongoing systemic racism against Black people and the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and too many others at the hands of police. Diversity is at the core of the music that we share and cover on the Noise Pop Podcast and on this episode, we’re using this platform to focus on and continue to amplify black voices and art during this crucial time. No justice, no peace. BLACK LIVES MATTER."
