Growing up in Baltimore, UNM Music Professor Richard Antoine White did his best to care for his mother, who was battling alcoholism, while experiencing homelessness and hunger. Searching for his mother one night resulted in a near death experience in the snow and being taken in by his adoptive grandparents. Under the care of his adoptive family, White discovered his purpose and passion for music and began his journey to musical success.

On this month’s show Dr. White joins host Stephen Spitz to discuss his new memoir, I’m Possible, which recounts how he went from the streets of Baltimore to becoming the first Black musician to earn a doctorate in Tuba Performance and the principal tubist for the New Mexico Philharmonic.

Produced with assistance of Elias Henry, Roman Garcia and Lynn Schibeci
