Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–Randolph lived a long, fascinating life, characterized by his single-minded drive to achieve racial equality for African Americans. In the course of 40 years, he faced down two U.S. presidents, defeated a powerful railroad company, and was the force behind the 1963 March on Washington. Miller depends heavily on existing scholarly and popular Randolph biographies. He tells the story in much the same way as it was told before, such as in Catherine Reef's A. Philip Randolph: Union Leader and Civil Rights Crusader (Enslow, 2001) and Lillie Patterson's A. Philip Randolph: Messenger for the Masses (Facts On File, 1995). Still, for readers with no knowledge of the subject, the overview approach makes Randolph and his achievements more accessible, and the book is certainly enhanced by the archival photographs of pivotal moments in the man's life and times.–Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ

From Booklist

Gr. 7-10. Aside from a suspect bit of legend building at the beginning (as children, if Randolph and his brother did not fight back against bullying, their mother "would whip them, for she hated cowards") and a reliance on previously published sources only, Miller lucidly traces Randolph's spectacular career while presenting a case study in the effective use of hard-nosed rhetoric and nonviolent tactics to achieve breakthroughs in the fight against segregation. Profusely illustrated with photographs, sometimes in color, and capped by resource lists, this portrait of the fiery civil rights leader will be useful in small and medium-sized libraries as a replacement or alternative for such out-of-print titles as Sally Hanley's A. Philip Randolph (1989). John Peters

A. Philip Randolph is definitely the supreme leader of the African American labor movement. He did so much work to pave the way for the culture in this country. He definitely had the J*U*ICE as proven with his ability to meet with U.S. presidents. This book gets straight to the point with facts about this great American icon.

This is a must read if you want to know about the national leader who paved they way for Martin Luther King, JR. Unofficially passing the torch to him at the March for Jobs and Freedom Washington, D.C., 1963.

Vice president AFL-CIO, Medal; of Freedom, first president Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, activist, organizer, and all that. Everything a labor leader should be today and more.

Hard to put this book down. Awesome collector item for discussion anytime of the year.

This book is more than simply a compelling biography of A. Philip Randolph. It clearly and concisely traces the evolution of the African-American Labor Movement and the fight against segregation in all aspects of American life, starting years before what most people think of as the "Civil Rights Movement." (In fact, Randolph was negotiating with Presidents when Martin Luther King Jr. was still a child.) His long, unrelenting struggle is well documented here in both words and images, making this a most valuable addition to any library. Highly recommended!

I ordered this book for a National History Day project for my 7th grader and was very pleased. It has lots of pictures and explains the complex subject of Segration, Labor Unions and Civil Rights in easy to read print and wording. A Phillip Randolph was unsung hero of the civil rights movement and this book portrays his life's accomplishments very well.
