Democratic Presidential Convention

In 1964 there was a convention in Atlantic City for Lyndon Johnson to be nominated for president. Outside the hall you had civil rights leaders who were demonstrating and saying the Democrats should move faster on civil rights, even though Johnson got the Civil Rights Act through Congress just the previous month - integrating public facilities - inside the hall you had two states in the South that were ready to walk out in protest over civil rights.
