Black History Month Profiles: Vonda McDaniel

Vonda McDaniel

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 the conditions in their community, but also the conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Vonda McDaniel.

Fiercely loyal to the working people in her Nashville, Tennessee, community, Vonda McDaniel continues to be a powerful leader through her faith and commitment to all people. By bridging the struggles of race, class and gender with her visionary strategy for a better future for all of us, she has always placed the needs of the labor movement before her own. She is a graduate of Tennessee State University. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., A. Philip Randolph Institute’s Nashville chapter and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. She was recently appointed to the Tennessee State Workforce Investment Board and serves as vice chair of the board for the Music City Center. McDaniel is a vice president for AFL-CIO’s Executive Council and co-chairs the State Federation/Central Labor Council Advisory Committee.
