A. Philip Randolph: For Jobs and Freedom
Friday, January 19, 2018, 6:30pm

1187 Franklin Street @ Geary Boulevard
A man whose role in American Civil Rights history has been overshadowed will get his due in the film A. Phillip Randolph: For Jobs And Freedom, directed by Dante Thomas and written by Juan Williams.
The film takes the viewer on a tour of 20th century Civil Rights and Labor History as it chronicles Randolph’s work using archival photos and footage, audio interviews with Randolph from the 1960’s and interviews with scholars and contemporaries from the Labor and Civil Rights Movement.
It is hoped that the film will fill in the blanks, for people who think they know about A. Philip Randolph will learn something and people who never heard of him will be pleasantly surprised.
Free Admission (donations appreciated).
As usual, popcorn and other refreshments will also be available.
