Source for A. Philip Randolph quote?

Victoria Grieve Discussion


I'm hoping someone can help me locate the source of the following 1944 quote by A. Philip Randolph:

“The Labor Movement, with all of its limitations and prejudices, that incidentally are common to all human institutions, offers to the Negro and all minorities the greatest hope and promise of freedom and democracy.”

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

When I tell you I searched far and wide for this and came up with nothing ... the frustration.

The closest I even came to was, "The essence of trade unionism is social uplift. The labor movement has been the haven for the dispossessed, the despised, the neglected, the downtrodden, the poor," and I couldn't find a source for that either.
