    IBEW Local 48 FRIENDS & FAMILY Movie Night Event - Rated R - RSVP

    This movie event is open to IBEW Local 48 family and friends.

    The rated R movie is described below: Children under 17 must be accompanied by their parent.

    The powerful true story of the first black-controlled union, The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. This is a controversial and inspiring tale of African American life in the 1920's. Controversial because its hero is an African-American socialist, and inspiring because he led a fight against one of the most powerful corporations in America.

    When the Great Depression struck America in the 1920s finding work was hard, but if you were poor and black it was virtually impossible. Working as a porter for the Pullman Rail Company was an option, but it meant taking home a third as much pay as white employees and working some days for free. You could forget about being called by your real name — all black porters were simply called “George” after George Pullman, the first person to employ emancipated slaves.

    Asa Philip Randolph, a black journalist and educated socialist trying to establish a voice for these forgotten workers, agrees to fight for the Pullman porters’ cause and form the first black union in America. Livelihoods and lives would be put at risk in the attempt to gain 10,000 signatures of the men known only as “George.” This is the true story of how a courageous leader came to be known as “the most dangerous man in America.”

    This movie event is free and open to IBEW Local 48 family and friends. We will provide the popcorn and beverages. Although not required, please let us know that you're coming to ensure that we have enough snacks, popcorn and beverages for you and your family/guest(s).
