In our sixth episode, we talk with Philip Miller, an activist composer from South Africa, whose whole career has integrated social justice with collaborative music projects. His newest work, NKOLI: The Vogue-Opera, profiles the life and work of Simon Nkoli, a gay anti-apartheid activist who was instrumental in securing civil rights for the LGBTQ community in South Africa and other African countries. Miller shares about the influence his family and identity had on his development as an activist, and the importance of making connections across the many forms of racial superiority and oppression that operate in our society. As a white, Jewish, gay man, Miller describes how he collaborates with Black South African to amplify their voices and raise awareness about their experiences. Miller makes beautiful connections between musical resonance and emotional resonance, and describes how music can help us integrate the unworded enormity of systemic oppression.
