Description

Mervyn M. Dymally sends a telegram to Louis Martin, Deputy Director of the Democratic National Committee in protest of President Lyndon B. Johnson's lack of people of color in his delegation, more specifically, "Negros and Mexican Americans". In response to this lack of representation, especially in a time when about six people on the Democratic State Central Committee were Black or Mexican American, Dymally along with Chairman Charles Warren expressed their protest against the choice by the Democratic National Committee.
