For centuries ringing bells have signaled the welcome of the Christian church to all who would hear its gospel. At certain times and in certain places, however, prejudice has led the church to limit its welcome to its own kind. The Southern white church during the civil rights movement fell victim to racial prejudice and its bells rang a welcome only for those who supported the segregated status quo. Donald E. Collins tells the story of the Alabama-West Florida Methodist Conference and its reactions to the civil rights movement.

Erasing Public Memory : Race, Aesthetics, and Cultural Amnesia in the Americas
Product Code: P327
ISBN: 9780881460582
Product Format: Paperback

Erasing Public Memory confronts the unacknowledged and uninterrogated assimilation of racial categories into aesthetic theories. The editors and contributors based much of their analysis on exposing the phenomenon that race and racism is at the very center of knowledge production in the academy, a process designed not so much to achieve a disinterested will to epistemological thresholds of truth, but to invent a racialized meta-rationality to the exclusion of all alternative ways of knowing.

When All God's Children Get Together : A Memoir of Race and Baptists
By author: Emmanuel McCall
Product Code: P365
ISBN: 9780881460650
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $18.00
Baptists in the South were once considered the last bastions of segregation. From 1957 to 1995, God was at work changing the attitudes of those opposed to the acceptance of all people. The change was so phenomenal that Dr. C. Peter Wagner at Fuller Theological Seminary called Southern Baptists the most open and diverse denomination in the nation. This book tells how God used people and events to bring about unheralded changes. The book is written from the author’s point of view, therefore it is limited in scope. However, because the author had a national platform, the book reflects that perspective as well.

The Cost of Unity: African American Agency and Education in the Christian Church, 1865-1914

Price: $45.00
Like other Protestant organizations in the United States, the Christian Church was involved in the establishment of schools for African- Americans in the South in the years following the end of the Civil War. The most widely read books offering an interpretation of the history of this church tend to relegate the role of black people to passive recipients of white benevolence and largesse in this process of education reform. This book examines the agency of African-Americans in the founding of educational institutions for blacks associated with the Christian Church. The philosophical discourse within the Christian Church concerning the purpose, type, and control of these schools is examined as well as the prevailing racial assumptions and attitudes that informed each of these areas.

The Souls of W. E. B. Du Bois: New Essays and Reflections
By author: Edward J. Blum   Edited by: Jason R. Young
Publisher: Mercer University Press

ISBN: 9780881461367
Product Format: Hardback

The Souls of W. E. B. Du Bois is a collection of articles that treat Du Bois on the subject of religion by reintroducing his life and work to an audience that may be familiar with his work generally but may never have seen analyses of his study of religion. Because the project includes articles that examine both Du Bois’s personal religious life along with his examination of religion, the editors seek to add not only to our knowledge of Du Bois’s scholarly contributions but also hope to shed light on his personal life and religiosity. Also, in treating the biography and career of a thinker whose work covers much of the twentieth century, the editors intend this work to address larger issues related to religion in the United States over the course of the century.
