Summary:
A. Philip Randolph posed with two unidentified men. No ink on negative. Ink on envelope: "A Phillip Randolph". "1 AGFA SAFETY FILM" edge imprint. No Scurlock number. On 7/12/2013 correspondent Craig Simpson added: "The man on left is John P. Davis, executive secretary of the National Negro Congress, center is A. Phillip Randolph, president of the National Negro Congress. The man on the right is U. Simpson Tate, treasurer of the National Negro Congress. The photo was likely taken April 26-28, 1940 during the Washington, D.C. National Negro Congress meeting. Randolph would refuse to stand for re-election at that meeting. It appears to be on the stage at the Andrew Mellon auditorium in what was then the Labor Department building at 1301 Constitution Avenue NW. The gathering was held at that location. You will note that the woodwork on the dais is the same as in another photo in the Scurlock collection "A. Phillip Randolph [acetate film photonegative ca 1935-1950] 618ns0179084pg.tif (AC Scan)."
