AFSCME – MLK Jr. Anniversary

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was killed in Memphis 43 years ago, where he had travelled to support AFSCME sanitation workers striking for the right to collective bargaining. That struggle continues today in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Michigan and other states throughout the country as working people fight back against attacks on their rights and the middle class.

Aaron recorded this version of “American the Beautiful” in support of this struggle that still remains today.
