Against the Grain

A. Philip Randolph, Black Socialist

A. Philip Randolph famously led the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, but he did much more than that. Eric Arnesen traces Randolph’s emergence as a militant socialist at a time when few Blacks were attracted to the Socialist Party and its emphasis on class. Arnesen also discusses Randolph’s relationship with Eugene Debs and W. E. B. Du Bois.
