This #GivingTuesday help make the historical Black Musicians Union Local 767 exhibition a reality. Watch our short video about bringing into fruition the BlackMusic, BlackWork Exhibit so current, and future generations can know and be inspired by American music, work and unification.
You are invited to join AFM Local 47, L.A. Black Worker Center, UCLA Labor Center & the City of Los Angeles in a creative effort to display South Los Angeles’ dynamic history of organizing in the arts. With your help, we will open a museum exhibit, Black Music, Black Work, that tells the story of the previously segregated Musicians Protective Association Local 767, a group of South Central musicians who fought to change an industry forever.
As we witness a level of Black working-class activism that has not been seen in decades, it is important to examine the lessons of the past in order to re-imagine the possibilities of work in our communities to address the Black Jobs crisis and its impact on Los Angeles
