A. Philip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom - 50th Anniv of the March on Washington

Join BloomBars and TransAfrica as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington (August 28), with the presentation of…

Film: A. Philip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom (1996, 86 min), by Dante James

When: August 27, 2013   7:00 PM

Donation: Suggested: $10. Proceeds will go to support both TransAfrica and BloomBars. Free popcorn and refreshments provided.

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.
