Southern White Ministers and the Civil Rights Movement

This chapter depicts the continuing non-violent Civil Rights Movement and the continuous efforts of southern white ministers. In Washington, D.C., Randolph Taylor opened his church doors to participants in the March on Washington. In Chapel Hill, demonstrations led by Charles Jones, Clarence Parker, Robert Seymour and students from the University of North Carolina challenged restaurants and businesses that refused to serve and admit African Americans. In Louisville Thomas Moffett, Gilbert Schroerlucke, George Edwards, Grayson Tucker, and Bishop Charles Marmion marched and demonstrated for open housing. Demonstrations in Selma focused on voting rights, not an issue in Chapel Hill or Louisville, but in Selma, where brutality and murder occurred, it was dangerous to protest for anything. Both Chapel Hill and Louisville were locations of major educational institutions, which guaranteed the presence of liberal minded white sympathizers, but hundreds of outside sympathizers arrived in Selma to help demonstrate for voting rights.
