Democratic National Convention
Atlantic City, New Jersey
August 27, 1964
The 1964 Democratic National Convention was held in Atlantic City at Convention Hall.
The Young Citizens Convention Rally took place from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and was billed as “An historic first convention session for young people featuring some of the nation's outstanding entertainment groups and political leaders.”
Executive Producer: Donal Friedman
Assistant Producer: Peter Long
Rally Director: Mike Nichols
Master of Ceremonies: Paul Newman
Entertainers appearing included the Serendipity Singers, Oscar Brown Jr., Peter, Paul & Mary, Vic Damone and ... Barbra Streisand.
Since the 27th was a Thursday, and Streisand was in the middle of her Broadway run of Funny Girl, she most likely was driven to the daytime concert in New Jersey, then back to Manhattan in time for that evening's show.
