Issued: Feb 3, 1989. 25¢ Asa Philip Randolph, Never Hinged
For more than sixty years Asa Philip Randolph lectured on the importance of equal rights and equal opportunity. He organized the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, was actively involved with the establishment of the Fair Employment Practice Committee, and formed the League for Nonviolent Civil Disobedience and the Negro-American Labor Council. Because of his efforts, President Truman issued an executive order against discrimination, allowing blacks to be admitted into the Army and Navy Academies. (APS)
