Traveling Exhibit

The A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum is proud to present this traveling exhibit. The exhibit chronicles the historic contributions of A. Philip Randolph and the Pullman Porters. The story of these great men and what they stood for is often told within the context of American railroad history, yet the real impact of their lives and mission far exceeds the railroad industry. This exhibit touches on the many stories of African-American participation in U.S. railroad history. Appropriately then, this collection begins with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and highlights important events in the following 100 years to the 1963 March on Washington.

About the Exhibit

This collection was assembled to document specific social events, important concepts, and historical moments in the history of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters (BSCP) union and A. Philip Randolph's leadership. Each exhibit panel tells a part of the story of this unique history. The images are grouped chronologically and are representative of each period. We welcome all to experience this interactive exhibit in memory of this important part of African-American history.
