PRA Archive #: 

This is a recording of the speeches given at a rally of 35,000 people at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco, July 12, 1964. The day before the opening of the Republican National Convention, 35,000 people marched up Market Street in San Francisco and held a mass rally in Civic Center. The purpose of the march and rally were to tell the convention delegates that they wanted a strong civil rights plank in the platform, and to protest Senator Barry Goldwater as the Republican presidential nominee. The march and rally were called by the Church Labor Council, composed of the Baptist Ministers Union, the Interdenominational-Ministerial Alliance, and the Negro Labor Assembly. When the marchers reached Civic Center, William Chester of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union welcomed them on behalf of the conference. Other speakers include A. Philip Randolph of the Negro American Labor Council and president of the Sleeping Car Porters of America; Reverend Booker Anderson; John Lewis, National Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee; Reverend Hamilton Boswell; James Leonard Farmer, National Director of Council On Racial Equality; four Republicans introduced by Jackie Robinson: Governor Rockefeller, Ambassador Lodge, New York senators Jack Javitz and Senator Keating; Reverend Abernathy, and Dr. (Thomas) Nathaniel Burbridge president of the San Francisco chapter of the Northern California Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
