McKissack, Patricia and Fredrick A Long Hard Journey: The Story of the Pullman Porter I recently recommended this book to a friend interested in the history of the Pullman strike, and then realized that while I had seen it and knew of it, I hadn’t actually read it. Teaching duties restricted my reading time, but now in retirement, I can read so much more. I’m glad I found and read this inspiring book about admirable leaders. It’s a reminder to never give up on a good cause despite setbacks, and a bit of history brought to life. A. Philip Randolph and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters should be celebrated, and dignity for all workers should be the norm. Special recognition was given for the brave and resourceful wives who organized meetings, disguised as handicraft circles, when the men would have been fired for labor organizing.
