A. Philip Randolph (1889-1979), a respected and outspoken proponent of the rights of minority labor. He was greatly feared by his opponents, not because of his temperament, but because of his power to create change. He was named Vice-President of the AFL-CIO in 1957. Randolph was also the founder of both the March on Washington Movement and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, which helped organize African-American labor. In 1963, he helped organize the famous march on Washington where the Rev. Martin Luther King delivered his famous I Have a Dream speech.
