Tangazo is a meeting place where we share ideas and explore efforts to improve our human conditions and quite simply make our lives better. All are welcome, none will be judged, but all are challenged to look beyond ourselves and our notions of how others think about issues of cultural​,​ political and social significance. We are building bridges of communication between the many groups that make up the St​. L​ouis Metropolitan Region by sharing and reflecting on the stories and lives of a diverse group of guests.

Gwen Moore is the curator of urban landscape and community identity with the Missouri History Museum. Moore is responsible for the museum's remarkable exhibit, "#1 in Civil Rights," which closed in Aprli 2018 after a nearly 400 month run in April 2018.

These celebrated sisters are daughters of Flora Horne, the inspiration for Dr Horne's book, Mother Wit: Exalting Motherhood While Honoring a Great Mother.

Hank asks Moore and Horne to talk about their mother and wonders what the world would be like if their were more Flora Horne-like mothers in our communities today.

Andy Heaslet is the show's engineer and Dhati Kennedy provides the beats behind Tangazo.
