Black History Month Profiles: Keturah Johnson

Keturah Johnson

This year, for Black History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Keturah Johnson of the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA-CWA).

Keturah Johnson is AFA-CWA's international vice president and Pride at Work's national executive board secretary, making her the first queer woman of color and combat veteran elected to serve in both roles. Johnson says it's an honor to work to make all spaces, including union spaces, safe and supportive for all people, including immigrants, trans people, Black and Indigenous people and the LGBTQ+ community.
