Renown historian John Hope Franklin would be 100-years-old if he were alive today.  Duke University is celebrating his legacy with the symposium, “Global Slaveries, Impossible Freedoms–The Intellectual Legacies of John Hope Franklin.”

The Imani Winds quintet has its roots in classical music but takes musical influences from all over the world.

Imani Winds is a Grammy-nominated wind quintet that has explored the limits of classical music for almost 20 years.

The ensemble grounds itself with a classical foundation, but infuses sounds from the Middle East to South America in its work.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Imani Winds about its origins and an upcoming performance at Duke University. Imani Winds is: Toyin Spellman-Diaz on oboe, Valerie Coleman on flute, Jeff Scott on french horn, Mariam Adam on clarinet and Monica Ellis on bassoon.
