Racial Divide at 1948 Democratic Convention


Racial Divide at 1948 Democratic Convention

Many white Southerners walked out of the 1948 Democratic Convention here, opposed to four measures: 1) desegregation of armed services, 2) abolition of state poll taxes, 3) a committee to ensure equal employment opportunity, and 4) a federal anti-lynching law. See the Philadelphia Inquirer, 7/24/16, at p. C2, or http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/20160724_The_year_three_political_conventions_came_to_Philly.html.
