In 1995, Lyn Hughes founded the A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum to celebrate the life of A. Philip Randolph, as well as the role of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and other African Americans in the U.S. labor movement. Located in South Side, Chicago and housed in one of the original rowhouses built by George Pullman to house workers, it is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Pullman National Historic Landmark District. The museum houses a collection of artifacts and documents related to the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
