Black History Month: The First Black Democrats

Black History Month: The First Black Democrats


Bishop Alexander Walters, Reverend J. Milton Waldron, and others, made the considered, and controversial, argument to support the Democratic Party in the early 1900s.  Using primary source documents and first person narratives, host Syl Woolford presents the thinking behind their decisions.

Lecturer, Syl Woolford, is a native Delawarean and a graduate of Delaware State University with a BS Degree in Business Administration and Accounting. He is also a graduate of Rutgers University with a MBA in Marketing. He has recently retired from a career in accounting and sales with such firms as Campbell Soup, IBM, Pacific Telesis and Sun Information Services.

Mr. Woolford’s interest in history began with the researching of his own family history. He traced his mother’s family back 210 years in the city of Newark, Delaware.
