Today in 1948: Senator Glen Hearst Taylor is arrested in Birmingham, Alabama, for trying to enter a meeting through a door marked for “Negroes” rather than using the “whites only” door, and convicted of disorderly conduct.

Taylor was the Progressive Party candidate for Vice President; the running mate of Henry Wallace. He was in Birmingham to address the Southern Negro Youth Congress.
