For musician Lenny Kravitz, race is important, or not

Lenny Kravitz, who was born to a black mother and white father, didn’t recognize skin color in his own home as a child. “I grew up in a house full of every color,” he recalls. On his latest album, Kravitz tackles that issue as well as what his parents experienced as an interracial couple in 1960s New York.
