“If there is anything more reprehensible than the practice of discriminiation upon a people because of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, it is for the people discriminated against to accept it without protest or resistance. It is an evidence of an utter lack of self-respect, the most priceless possession an individual or group can have, without which there can be no human dignity.”
– A. Philip Randolph, 1959
Asa Philip Randolph was a groundbreaking leader, organizer, and social activist who championed equitable labor rights for African American communities, becoming one of the most impactful civil rights and social justice leaders of the 20th century. His activism spanned 60 years, and included the organization of the largest labor union for Black workers in the United States and the coordination of two Marches on Washington (1941 and 1963).
Randolph spent the formative years of his early life in Jacksonville, Florida. He was born on April 15, 1889, in Crescent City, Florida, to an ordained minister in the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) church, the Rev. James William Randolph, and his wife, Elizabeth Robinson Randolph. In 1891, when he was three years old, his family moved to Jacksonville. He attended Edward Waters College (a Historically Black College founded in 1866) from ages fourteen to sixteen before transferring to the Cookman Institute (a Historically Black educational institute founded in 1872 and located in Jacksonville), from which he graduated as valedictorian in 1907.
In 1911, recognizing the constraints that racial segregation placed on his life in his native Florida, Randolph left Jacksonville for New York City. Initially he hoped for a life on the stage but redirected his talents to issues of fairness and equity in employment and civic life. During World War I, Randolph faced formidable odds as he worked to unionize African American shipyard workers and elevator operators. During this time, along with his friend and collaborator Chandler Owen, Randolph edited and published the Messenger magazine between 1917 and 1925, during which it served as a promotional vehicle for the Harlem Renaissance.
Randolph’s career as a labor leader took a new turn when he became the first president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters in 1925, which by 1937 would become the first official African American labor union. After his victories in the arena of organized labor, in the 1940s, Randolph focused his attention on the larger goal of ending racial discrimination in government defense factories and desegregating the armed forces, both accomplished through presidential decrees. Becoming involved in additional civil rights work, he was a principal organizer of the proposed March on Washington in 1941, and the more famous 1963 March on Washington during which the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
On May 16, 1979, at age 90, Mr. Randolph passed away. He was cremated, and his ashes were interred at the A. Philip Randolph Institute in Washington, D.C.
There are several sites in Jacksonville that pay tribute to the legacy of A. Philip Randolph. He is the namesake of the A. Philip Randolph Academies of Technology, A. Philip Randolph Boulevard (formerly Florida Avenue), and the adjoining A. Philip Randolph Park on Jacksonville’s east side.

It is imperative that all faculty, staff and students actively commit to adhering to the new processes that will be implemented to ensure the safety and wellbeing for one another, our families and our communities. It starts with each one of us and I believe together as a team we can rise to the challenge.
Consideration will be given for the implementation of alternative work arrangements for those employees who fall within the following parameters. These self-identified individuals are asked to contact the Office of Human Resources as soon as possible via email at [email protected] for further instructions:

Preventative measures currently in place include:
- Utilizing no-touch thermometers to check for existing fevers.

- Directed employees to clean their hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-95% alcohol, or wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty.
- Provided soap and water in the workplace. We have ensured that adequate supplies are maintained.
- Best Practices for Personal Health: Human coronaviruses are usually spread from an infected person to others through the air by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact (such as shaking hands), touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth nose or eyes before washing your hands, or (rarely) fecal contamination.
To reduce your risk of infection: Always wear provided masks unless you are in your office space alone. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands, and avoid close contact with people who are sick. Please refrain from gathering in groups. Please continue to practice appropriate social distancing, 6 feet.
Employee Travel: Travel for faculty and staff is suspended indefinitely, with exceptions authorized by the President & CEO only.
Travel: If any faculty or staff have traveled to any areas (nationally or internationally) where cases have been reported, please immediately notify the College of such. If exposed to the virus, we are asking those individuals to self-isolate as recommended by the CDC, the World Health Organization and the U.S. State Department.
Meetings: Staff and other meetings should be conducted by phone or video conference per the advisement of the area Vice President.
Classes: As of now, EWC requires all summer courses are to be delivered online. As such, students and faculty will remain off-campus.

As we transition on Monday, March 23, 2020 to an “Interim Remote Work Period” via a teleworkmodality during this COVID-19 outbreak, we want to ensure that the intentions and expectations of performance and productivity are clearly communicated to all faculty and staff of Edward Waters College (EWC). Working from home does not constitute time-off or a relaxed work ethic. Rather, Telework is executing the same work obligations, but in an alternative location.
Remote working is most efficient when employees and supervisors communicate, plan and respond. Therefore, employees approved to work remotely from home on a temporary basis must:
- Be equally, if not more intentional, on response time
- Answer phones within three (3) rings, unless assisting others

- Continue to use prompt and courteous EWC greetings when answering calls/emails
- Read and reply to emails on a heightened level for continuity and seamless process management
- Be prepared to meet as normal/as needed via virtual/teleconference meetings per Supervisor direction
- Be mindful of background noise
Please understand that as you work from home, consistent communication is critical as email and telecommunication will be the only lifelines between internal and external constituents. Failure to timely respond to directives from your supervisor and/or job related requests for support from students, faculty, staff, and outside business partners and constituencies may constitute non-compliance and result in the use of vacation time. Therefore, ensure your availability and conduct yourself as if present in your on-campus office.
Employees approved to telecommute must have the following items to ensure appropriate functioning of remote work environments include:
- Computer or laptop
- Internet (Comcast/Xfinity and Spectrum are offering free internet service)
- Forwarding land line or cell phone number to receive EWC calls
- Access to EWC remote desktop, files (electronic/paper), and other materials necessary for continued workflow
Specific details will be emailed by Mr. David Simfukwe, Director of Information Technology
& Telecommunications regarding directions on call forwarding and remote access to campus. Faculty and staff can also contact the IT Help Desk at 904-470-8179, or their immediate supervisor for area related questions and issues.
Please contact the Office of Human Resources for additional questions and/or clarity regarding the Interim Remote Work Report via email at [email protected] or call 904-470-8237 or 904-470-8230.
