This week marks Illinois’ bicentennial. To celebrate, I chose to highlight the Pullman Porters. They formed the first black union to successfully make a deal with a major corporation.

The Pullman Porters helped lay the foundation for the Civil Rights movement and the labor movement. I am incredibly proud to be from and represent the Pullman community that carries on their legacy through the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum.
