The Black Men of Labor organize a second line parade each Labor Day
weekend to honor the city's workers, including the many brass band
musicians who work to make New Orleans' culture distinct. Black Men
of Labor formed in 1993 after the death of jazz musician Danny
Barker, and the the Social Club has advanced Barker's mission of
maintaining traditional styles by hiring traditional brass bands to
march in their parade and offering mentorship programs for younger
musicians. Matt Sakakeeny asked co-founders Greg Stafford, a jazz
trumpeter and school teacher, and Fred Johnson, an Outreach
Specialist at the Neighborhood Development Foundation, about parade
music and culture.

Wait a minute dear blogger... what do you mean with this term "the black men" I think it was a little derogative or something like that, I know, the easiest form to write, buy you must have careful about it. Viagra Online articles has been adding rules about all this little mistakes. I hope you come across and explore this politic.
