The NAACP's fight against John J. Parker's nomination to the Supreme Court in 1930 energized African Americans politically and prepared the way for the 1936 black-voter switch and the entry of African Americans into the New Deal Coalition. The confirmation debate in the Senate on Parker's nomination revealed that the issue of race in national politics, which had been ignored after Reconstruction, could no longer be overlooked.
