On Thursday, Feb. 20, the Chicago Sinfonietta's Project Inclusion performed at Fermilab in Ramsey Auditorium as part of Inclusion Matters 2020. "Project Inclusion started in 2008 to provide promising, diverse musicians a fellowship for one to two years. The goal is to identify, train, mentor and ready orchestra musicians beginning their pursuit of a professional career — musicians from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, diverse racial, ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds, that are traditionally underrepresented in orchestras."

It was 1969, and Keith Coiley was a high-schooler who heard about a good-paying summer job working at what was then named the National Accelerator Laboratory. That year, Johnny Green, also in high school, was recruited to join the lab, as was Curtis Danner a year later. Fifty years later, they continue as productive members of the Fermilab workforce and community. In recognition of Black History Month, they talk about their experiences as black men working at an international science center over a half-century.
