From story card.

The 1948 Democratic National Convention was held at Convention Hall in Philadelphia, United States, from July 12 to July 14, and resulted in the nominations of President Harry S. Truman for President and U.S. Senator Alben W. Barkley of Kentucky for Vice President. When Minneapolis Mayor Hubert Humphrey addressed the convention, he urged the Democratic Party to "get out of the shadow of states' rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights," prompting a walkout by Southern delegates who later nominated Strom Thurmond as the presidential nominee of the States' Rights Party, or "Dixiecrats".
