This journal is a historical replica of an instruction manual for railroad porters, attendants and bus boys. While the inside of this hardcover book is blank or ruled line, the original text provided information on everything from passenger care and beyond. The manual also included rules that emphasized the strict expectations required of the company's almost entirely African American workforce.

It's a 5x7 book with 128 pages for your art or writing. Offering a durable wraparound print and case-wrap binding, this is an excellent journal meant to pay homage to our black history makers. These railroad workers are credited with making a contribution to the development of the black middle class in America. Their descendants included men like Thurgood Marshall and others. Let this journal commemorate their journey from servitude to demanding civil and worker rights.
