The power to change lives, industry, and community begins in moments like these when collective voices rise and challenge the conditions of the status quo. The legacy of Black resistance to exploitation, discrimination, and union exclusion is needed as much today as in the 1950s when Musicians Protective Association Local 767 fought for integration. 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.
