The National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum, a 501 C (3) cultural institution is the only museum in the nation that bears the name of A. Philip Randolph and the Porters, located in the Pullman National Monument.
Our mission is to promote, honor and celebrate the legacy of A. Philip Randolph and contributions made by African-Americans to America's labor movement; with a significant focus on the African American Railroad Employee. At our facility this celebration begins with the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, as we educate the public about their historic legacy and contributions.
They were the first Black union in America to be chartered under the American Federation of Labor —At the time, a life-changing accomplishment.
The museum’s operational budget is not funded by the city, state, or federal funds, for that reason, ALL fundraising activity is essential.
We are not just a museum - We are the face of cultural Economic Development.
