Local 72-147 has a proud history of representing musicians since the chartering of Local 72 in Fort Worth in 1898 and Local 147 in Dallas in 1901. But before 1965, black musicians fighting the discrimination of segregation formed AFM locals on their own. This is an important part of the rich history of Local 72-147. Please visit our permanent page honoring black history in Dallas/Fort Worth and the great musicians and music that bring this story alive.
