Synopsis: Fascinating collection of oral histories from several Pullman Porters woven together with a history of the Porters and their famed leader, A. Philip Randolph. Discusses unionization, the daily life of the porter, common problems and stereotypes, and the demise of the porters as passenger trains faded away. Illustrated with black and white photos. With bibliography. 160 pages with index.
Review: "This monograph, as moving and complex as the simple poetry of its eloquent title, will richly repay the attention of southern historians... [Santino's] analysis of Pullman porters is both richly descriptive and suggestive of the way in which the porters' world provides a microcosmic view of race relations that is also emblematic of the position of blacks in the larger world in which Pullman porters were part of the black elite." -- Jerrold Hirsch, Journal of Southern History
