Fred Child recently interviewed Aaron Dworkin, the founder and president of the Sphinx Organization, about the value of diversity in art. He's written a new memoir titled Uncommon Rhythm about his experience as a violinist of mixed race and as a leader in developing young classical musicians. We found this interview so thought-provoking and important that we wanted to share it with our listeners and hear your side.

For the next four days, we'll post an excerpt from the interview. We invite your comments and reactions on our Facebook page.
