A 20th-century American socialist and union organizer. He was particularly known for his role in the civil rights movement, protesting against discrimination against Black Americans in military contracts and other areas. In 1925, he organized the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first major effort to unionize the Pullman Company, which was then a major employer of African Americans. He lived from 1889 to 1979.
