APR Pullman Porter Museum
On August 25, 1925, America's very first black labor union was formed, and it didn't happen without a fight. For Asa Phillip Randolph, leader of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, it took 12 hard years of negotiation to ensure job safety for African American workers. But Randolph's hard-won victory had lasting effects, paving the way for the American Civil Rights Movement and rewriting the book of the nation's history.
The tale of Randolph and the Pullman Porters is lovingly chronicled, celebrated, and namesaked at the A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum. Founded by Dr. Lyn Hughes in 1995, the museum is a testament to the struggle for equality and a celebration of African-American railroad workers. Through their permanent collection of artifacts, along with traveling exhibits, the APR Pullman Porter Museum examines the railroad men's impact on African-American history, from the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 through the 1963 March on Washington.
