CHICAGO --A new mural is now on display at the A-Phillip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum on the Far South Side.

It memorializes the Chicago laborers who formed the nation's first black union.

The 18-by-14 foot mural is on the outside of the building.

It features members of the brotherhood of sleeping car porters and their chief, A-Philip Randolph.

The artwork is among the first projects in the Pullman neighborhood since President Obama named the area a national monument back in February.
