May Day Commemoration in the Cemetery

Today a small group of us gathered at the headstone for the five victims of the Greensboro massacre on 1979. With stirring music played by Bryan Cahall, we honored the five who gave their lives to the struggle for an end to all exploitation.

The solidarity was palpable — I don’t really know how else to describe the mood. Survivor Signe Waller-Foxworth’s words moved a number of us to the brink of tears. 

There were a number of events scheduled this weekend for May Day and they didn’t all go as planned, but this powerful gathering will serve as an event to emulate in the future.

To top it all off, we all received commemorative May Day posters which were beautifully designed and I intend to frame to hang on the wall.
