This episode features Ramel Strong. He is from Memphis and has danced and taught mambo, salsa, and bachata for many years. He also has an immense background in finance and business. In this episode, we discuss the African-American/Black-American involvement in Latin music in New York especially with styles like mambo, latin-boogaloo, and salsa music. We also dive into the issue of inequality in Memphis and that African-Americans, who make up the majority of the city should have more opportunity and equity.
