A. Phillip Randolph
A. Philip Randolph (b. April 15, 1889 – d. May 16, 1979) was an American labor unionist, civil rights activist, and politician. In 1925, he organized the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first predominantly African-American labor union. His continuous agitation against unfair labor practices in relation to people of color eventually led to Executive Order 8802 in 1941, banning discrimination in the defense industries during World War II, and Executive Order 9981 in 1948, ending segregation in the armed services.
