THIS DAY IN HISTORY: Racist Democrats Protest Black Woman’s Invitation to White House Luncheon by First Lady Hoover (Video)

Republican First Lady Lou Hoover invited Jessie De Priest to a White House luncheon.

95 years ago today, on June 12th, 1929, Democrats across the country expressed outrage that President Herbert Hoover’s wife, Lou, invited an African-American woman to a White House reception.

First Lady Lou Hoover, a Republican, held a luncheon for the wives of Republican congressmen.

Mrs. Hoover refused the Democrats’ demands that she rescind her invitation to Jessie De Priest, wife of Oscar De Priest, an African-American congressman from Chicago.

The Luncheon went on as planned.
