Please join us this Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. And lets not forget that the reason he was so often in Memphis staying at the Lorraine Motel was to support the strike of the Memphis sanitation workers. Racial equality and civil rights were important causes that he is remembered for, but let us not forget his work to end economic injustice and to support the workers who went on strike to secure their physical safety and livelihoods.
As the Musicians of the Knoxville Symphony continue and AFM Local 546 continue our ongoing contract negotiations this week, we support the right of labor unions to organize and fight for workers’ rights and a decent livelihood.
The performance is free to the public and will take place on Monday, January 15 at 6:00 p.m. at the Tennessee Theatre. For more information about this celebration:
