Epic Peters: Pullman Porter, by Octavus Roy Cohen, with an introduction by Alan Grubb and H. Roger Grant

November 15, 2012

“Cohen’s work is the next-best-thing to having an oral history of a Pullman porter during the hey-day of intercity train travel, at a time when the Pullman Company was one of the largest employers of African-Americans. Epic Peters wonderfully encapsulates virtually everything that was once the life of a Pullman porter.”

—Alan Grubb and H. Roger Grant
