From Memphis to Madison: The Struggle Continues...(Great video w/old & new pics)
Forty-three years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had traveled to support AFSCME sanitation workers striking for the right to collective bargaining. The struggle for workers' rights continues today in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Michigan and other states throughout the country.
We invite you to watch the new video we've created about this on-going struggle. Legendary soul and R&B singer and musician Aaron Neville recorded the song "America the Beautiful" especially for this commemoration.

Miss him still and forever..............
