New Jazz Labor Opera Premieres Saturday(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

“Love Songs from the Liberation War”, a new jazz labor opera by Steve Jones, will have its world premiere this Saturday. Based on the real-life victory by striking North Carolina tobacco workers in the 1940’s, this riveting opera includes characters like RJ Reynolds, Jim Crow, Paul Robeson, Pete Seeger and the African American women workers, including Theodosia Simpson and Moranda Smith, who paved the way for the historic victory. For tickets, call 202-639-6204, or visit the Labor Heritage Foundation’s website. “Come on out for a night to remember packed with stories of this titanic battle between good and evil,” says LHF.
