Rising from the Rails

Pullman porters held the worst job on the train and the best in the black community for the 100 years they worked on George Pullman’s sleeping cars. They launched the first successful black trade union and helped fuel with civil rights movement. Yet as Rising from the Rails shows, porters’ most lasting legacy was giving birth to children and grandchildren who run America’s cities and states, sit on corporate and editorial boards, number among this country’s leading professors, doctors and lawyers, and form the core of today’s African-American middle class.
