Chapter 23 Writing Assignment How did the Democratic Party’s embrace of civil rights shape the election of 1948? The Democratic party of 1948 is known as the most progressive party due to its rejection of racial discrimination. The mayor of Minneapolis, Hubert Humphrey spoke up at the Democratic National Convention and 1948 and declared that the Democratic party need to remove the states abilities to cover up racial discrimination and focus more on everyone having the same human rights. This was unfavored by many southern delegates and they chose to form a separate Democratic party that would allow them to still segregate blacks and whites. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina was elected to head this party and managed four states during the 1948 election. Alongside these two parties was the support from Truman for civil rights. This not only made blacks more important in the North but it would continue one to strengthen civil rights in the south during the 1960s.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
