I'd like to open the discussion: If you are an African American and have railroad ancestors, tell us what you know. If you don't know much, perhaps only the railroad, or the town where the individual worked, I can probably direct you to reseources for learning more. For example, it's quite easy to trace the careers of Pullman porters and maids.
If you are currently a railroader, how about sharing some of your experiences? I'd like this to become an open forum about black railroaders and the black railroad heritage.
Join the discussion, please.
