The Movie: A. Philip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom (1996, 86 min), by Dante James - chronicles labor organizer A. Philip Randolph's legendary efforts to build a more equitable society.
Today most Americans don't realize that the man who led the 1963 March on Washington wasn't Martin Luther King Jr., but a 74 year old African American labor leader. "A. Phillip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom", begins to restore a brilliant civil rights and labor activist to his place as a key figure in 20th century American history.
Our film will be followed by audience discussion moderated by Mwiza Munthali, the Public Outreach Director of TransAfrica.
