The Gates of Justice was composed during the tense atmosphere of the post-Civil Rights Era to help ease the enmity between Jewish and African Americans, but for Dave Brubeck the work's message is much more universal. As he notes in this video, "this world could really disappear on us unless we really get down to believing in the original meaning of all the great religions and the brotherhood of man." Includes commentary by Dave and Iola Brubeck, Rabbi Charles Mintz, Cantor Alberto Mizrahi, baritone Kevin Deas, and video footage from the 2001 Milken Archive recording session, conducted by Russell Gloyd. Narrated by Johnny Cho.
