The Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum plans to unveil a mural [July 4, 2015] aimed at memorializing the Chicago laborers who formed the nation’s first black union.

The 18-by-14-foot photo-realistic mural features members of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and their chief, A. Philip Randolph. The artwork will be among the first projects to materialize in the historic Far South Side neighborhood since President Barack Obama named the area a national monument in February…Please click here to read Tony Briscoe’s story in the Chicago Tribune.
