Summary note
"This book is the record of one of the most interesting and least known labor organizations in the United States. It reveals the struggle of the American Negro to secure recognition in the world of organized labor and tells the story of the beginnings, growth and present activites of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. Here are the problems of the Pullman porters, the work they do, the special types of issues and grievances their work creates. Written with understanding and authority, it not only symbolizes the effort of the Negro to gain recognition in labor's ranks but also marks a noteworthy advance in his economic status."-- Dust jacket flap
