Anita Dixon was previously, the Executive Director of the Mutual Musicians Foundation International in the heart of historic 18th And Vine. This National Historic Landmark, once known as Local 627, or the “colored” musicians union, promotes the rich history and culture that created the Swing Era of Jazz, and the legacy of this unique place makes it an international destination for heritage tourism. Anita also started one of the nation’s first “heritage” tour companies that specialized in African American heritage, sites and attractions.
