In undertaking this examination, I have chosen to concentrate on Randolph’s early life and career and elected not to include any detailed treatment of his activism in the 1950s and 1960s. I view his 1950s and 1960s civil rights activism as largely illustrative of his social, political, and economic thinking rather than formative to its development. It was in the interwar years—the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s—where the sharp contours of his ideas about social justice, race and class, interest group politics, and direct action took shape.
But his understanding of interest group politics and mass action also set new parameters for black political activism going forward. Even though subsequent efforts to challenge racial discrimination in other facets of American life refined all of these ideas somewhat, the basic premise of Randolph’s understanding of these key constructs remained largely unchanged. His ideas undoubtedly shaped the philosophical, tactical, and strategic foundations of African Americans’ civil rights struggle, and the 1963 March on Washington stands as the quintessential example of their impact.

According to Asa, his father seldom brought home paper money from his weekend visits unless it was nearing the time of the church’s Annual Conference.
