Phi Beta Sigma Provides COVID-19 Relief to Pullman Porter Museum in Chicago

78 Shares

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.
