10,000 Black Men Named George
During the Depression, gainful employment is practically nonexistent for African-Americans. The only available jobs are as porters for the Pullman Rail Company (which pays blacks one-third of what white employees make). Journalist Philip Randolph (Andre Braugher) makes it his mission to help these forgotten workers -- called "George," after company founder George Pullman -- and helps form the first black union in America. Robert Townsend directs.
