Description

A powerful journey of a black man's dreams and dilemmas, fears and perseverance. Cerebral and racy, historical and reflective, "Hey boy! Hey George!" The Pullman Porter chronicles Kirvin's experience as a Pullman porter during WWII. Some viewed Pullman porters as prestigious breadwinners, while others viewed them as glorified servants, but what was it really like to deliver a standard of excellence while trying to survive and earn a living under Jim Crow segregation laws? Experience Kirvin's challenges firsthand, then decide for yourself.
