The month of February is designated to acknowledge the achievements made by African American people throughout history. To honor Black History Month, each day, we will recognize a historic figure that has helped society for the better. Today’s person of the day is:
- A. Philip Randolph is considered the most important civil rights leader that emerged from the labor movement. He put the interests of black workers at the forefront of his racial agenda. He was constantly calling out unions for discrimination and worked to improve the lives of all African American workers.
