Singer and activist Annie Lennox believes in the power of education and its potential to change the world. Now, the diva wants to provide education for five million girls in the next five years. Carlos Santana provided a part of the soundtrack to turbulent times of the late 60s.  His music is a reflection of America’s counterc​ulture and will join us to share his memories of the Vietnam War and a country in turmoil. Legendary musician Herb Alpert will take us inside his  career and his work fostering education in the arts.

Aired on October 18, 2019.
