This Day In Daily History

Democrats take strong position for desegregation

April 6, 1960 — Midwestern Democrats issued a strongly worded policy statement vowing to uphold U.S. Supreme Court decisions in favor of desegregation.

Using oblique but clear language addressing the southern wing of the party, the statement threatened the use of federal force to enforce desegregation in all states, saying civil rights — including the right to vote, protest and receive equal protection under the law — “transcend state boundaries.”

The proposal will be considered for adoption as official party policy at the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

Delegates to the Midwestern conference expressed indifference at the possibility of a southern walkout.

“If the South wants to walk out, let them do it,” U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) said. “I’ll open the door.”

Also, in an article in the Oct. 13, 2004 edition of the Daily, it should have said that Matt Stehney is co-chair of the Native American Student Association.
