On Monday, Jan. 18, The Labor Forum on WRFG 89.3FM will speak with two of the 1968 Memphis sanitation strikers, Alvin Turner and Baxter Leach about the historic stance taken by these workers for respect, safe working conditions and higher pay.
Dr. Martin Luther KIng Jr recognized the importance of their struggle and came to Memphis to support them, setting the stage for his assassination.
The Labor Forum will speak with these two heroes of the labor movement as well as the current vice-president of AFSCME Local 1733, Keith Johnson, about the ongoing fight for worker rights and against racism and inequality in Memphis.
The Labor Forum airs from 4-5pm every Monday on WRFG 89.3FM in Atlanta.
