Chicagoan classical musician Anthony McGill speaking with Melissa Harris Perry on MSNBC's MHP: "I think our parents gave us a true sense of identity and we always connected with our identity. We know where we're from. They never taught us that we couldn't do anything or be anything that we wanted. Race mattered only to us as far as being good role models and being -- our parents raising us to be strong role models. But as far as playing classical music, something that we fell in love with. They wanted us to do what we wanted to do. It didn't matter if it was predominantly of a different race."
