During the 1940s, Randolph twice used mass protest as a means of influencing the policies of the federal government.
No longer can we stand for this outrageous form of discrimination and segregation in our community
he planned a march on Washington to protest discrimination in the war industry workforce. Randolph called off the march after President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order that banned racial discrimination at government defense factories and established the first Fair Employment Practices Committee.
Let us march
After World War II, Randolph again took on the federal government by organizing the League for Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Against Military Segregation. That group's actions eventually led President Harry S. Truman to issue a 1948 executive order banning racial segregation in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Why don't we treat the ones that fight for us everyday with more respect
Throughout his life Randolph worked with many significant figures such as, John Lewis (on the left), and Martin Luther King Jr. (on the right)
Together these men created immense amounts of support for a way to desegregate society through non-violent matters and provided many African Americans with new opportunities to be treated as equal people in the community
Randolph died on May 16, 1979 in Manhattan, New York City, NY having completed unprecedented amounts of accomplishments and creating a large difference in the treatment of people of color. His work with Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis helped millions of people and continues to help them even today!
