When I read reactionary things like this article I wonder what people are thinking. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven I'm sure as white overlords treated their slaves very well (much sarcasm intentional). Bartok was not so well treated so to think of him as a privileged white guy is ridiculous, he struggled. To even use the phrase "white European music from the slave period" doesn't even apply to the situation.
Possible changes to undergraduate courses include reducing the focus on canonic classical composers like Mozart and Beethoven, in a proposed move away from “white European music from the slave period”.
It was reported that professors questioning the music curriculum’s “complicity in white supremacy” also proposed a lighter focus on western music notation, allegedly described in the documents as a “colonialist representational system”
