C.L. Dellums

In 1925, porters from the Pullman Company formed the first nationwide Black union, the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters (BSCP), to fight for better wages and less exploitative working conditions. During C.L. Dellums’ long career as BSCP Vice President, the union played a key role in every significant civil rights struggle from the Montgomery bus boycott to the March on Washington. Hear from C.L. Dellums and his daughter, Marva as they recount the history on the tour.
