Music of the Heart (Feat. Danielle G.)

We welcome back the delightful Danielle G. of Young, Gifted, and Abroad to discuss Wes Craven's most confounding and perhaps scariest film, Music of The Heart. 

Starring Meryl Streep, the film draws on the real life of Roberta Guaspari, a violin teacher who berates Black and Brown children for over 2 hours. But the twist is, they love it! So much so it earned Meryl Streep an Oscar nomination. 

We talk about a particularly wild scene with Meryl talking down to a Black mother and invoking Arthur Ashe, the pervasiveness of the white gaze, and what the hell Wes Craven was thinking with this one. 

Danielle is still going strong with Young, Gifted, and Abroad. Follow her on Twitter @ygabroad and @younggiftedandabroad on IG. And you can find the show wherever you podcast. 

You can find us on Twitter at @white_pod and send us movie recs, wild caucacity or just kind words at 

Stay safe, find some joy, Happy Pride!
