As the presidential debates ended in rancor over Cuba, another event that attracted relatively little attention at the time influenced the presidential race and symbolized a rising issue that would loom large in American politics in the 1960s. The event was the jailing of Martin Luther King Jr. The subsequent turmoil over it infused civil rights into the presidential campaign and offered a portent of things to come.
