Indianapolis Mayor William Hudnut participated in a march for Operation Big Vote, a coalition of labor and social groups created to increase voter registration among minority groups. Hudnut spoke at the rally along with the Rev. Thomas Brown and Julia Carson, a state senator who would later become the first woman and the first Black to represent Indianapolis in Congress.
