Summary
Biography of A. Philip Randolph, African American labor leader, journalist, and civil rights activist. Randolph won the first national labor agreement for a black union, The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. His threat of a protest march on Washington forced President Roosevelt to ban segregation in the federal government and defense industries at the onset of WWII and later, he forced President Truman to integrate the military. Finally, with the 1963 March on Washington, Randolph succeeded in placing civil rights at the forefront of the nation's legislative agenda as he passed the torch to Martin Luther King, Jr. Includes music of the labor and civil rights movements.
