Into the Bright Sunshine: Hubert H. Humphrey, Civil Rights Pioneer

Into the Bright Sunshine: Hubert H. Humphrey, Civil Rights Pioneer

Talks/Lectures
1948, Hubert Humphrey forced the Democratic Party to abandon its segregationist past. Humphrey was Lyndon B. Johnson’s vice president during Vietnam and lost to Richard M. Nixon in the tumultuous 1968 presidential election. But before Nixon, before Johnson and before two terms in the U.S. Senate, Humphrey was mayor of Minneapolis and at the’48 Democratic convention that year led an insurgency that forced the party to adopt a first-ever civil rights plank. Based on a forthcoming biography. A lecture by Samuel G. Freedman, award-winning author of “Breaking the Line,” “Jew vs. Jew” and “Letters to a Young Journalist,” former New York Times reporter and professor at Columbia University School of Journalism.
