Pullman Porters in the USA – From Service to Civil Rights + video

Pullman Porters in the USA

Pullman Porters: From Service to Civil Rights, is at the nexus of three central historical narratives: railroads in United States History, and the labor and civil rights movements of the 20th century. Using the latest digital technology as well as the most current methods of museum exhibition, the exhibit, Museum staff have developed a compelling exhibit that tells the story of a group of men who worked America’s rail lines for nearly 100 years.
The exhibit features a restored 1920s 10-1-2, Pullman sleeper car, the Lake Mitchell, supported by interpretive elements in and around the car.
