I am a proud member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 1000, a non-geographical local of traveling musicians from across the United States and Canada. Here are some of my union sisters and brothers at our gathering at the Highlander Center in New Market TN. We got to witness one of the famous Highlander rocking chairs being presented to Sweet Honey in the Rock founder Bernice Johnson Reagon. Since 1932, the Highlander has been a center for organizers of the Labor Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, and most recently Immigrants’ Right Movements to meet, strategize, and be inspired.
