Truman was the first President in a long time to show support for the civil rights cause. His actions, including addressing the NAACP and forming a Panel to address civil rights abuses, angered some of the other members of his party, whom eventually walked out of the Democratic Convention in anger over the party’s acceptance of Truman’s policies. Democrats played upon this to encourage the liberal and African American vote with Truman for Civil Rights buttons.
