The brothers of Phi Beta Sigma are doing their part to help the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter(NAPRPP) Museum with COVID-19 relief funds.
The museum, which is named after Phi Beta Sigma fraternity brother A. Philip Randolph and is located in Chicago, has been affected by COVID-19 shutdowns and members of the fraternity’s Great Lakes Region are launching a regional membership drive for it.
The membership drive will run through December 2020, and will support the museum’s COVID-19 recovery.
In 1925, a A. Philip Randolph organized and led the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first predominantly African-American labor union. In 1963, Randolph headed up the March on Washington, where Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech.
We at Watch The Yard would like to commend the brothers of Phi Beta Sigma for their commitment to keeping Black museums alive and operational.
