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.

William Wallace Finlator is a Southern Baptist preacher. Except for three years a t Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in the mid-1930s he has spent all of his life in North Carolina. Like most North Carolina Baptist ministers, Finlator has vigorously opposed gambling and the consumption of beverage alcohol. But while many ministers were organizing “Christian” segregation academies, Finlator campaigned for elimination of racial discrimination in public and religious institutions. He has opposed capital punishment and the war in Vietnam. He advocated separation of church and state, opposing prayer in public schools and proposing abolition of tax exemptions for church property. He has served as chaplain of the North Carolina AFL-CIO, chairman of the North Carolina Committee on Civil Rights, and vice president of the American Civil Liberties Union. Even in retirement Finlator remains a prophet, a humanist, and a pastor to many people who seek his compassion and counsel.
