Interview with Robert Moses
QUESTION 31
INTERVIEWER:

GIVE ME THE EXAMPLE OF A MEETING TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW YOU—THE DELEGATION REALLY IS NOT INVOLVED OR ACTIVE IN ANYTHING THAT'S GOING ON THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.

Robert Moses:

Right, once we were at the convention the delegations role began to, was to lobby the, the delegates from the other states to try to get them to convince the Credentials Committee to accept their position. But the intensive actual political infighting that was going on was within the Democratic Party and the Johnson Administration, we were not part of that or were not consulted as in terms of what our actual positions were. When it came down to the final decisions being made, what happens was a meeting was set up with Hubert Humphrey and Walter Reuther who flew down from Detroit and Bayard Rustin with Martin Luther King and Andy Young and Aaron Henry and Ed King.
