Show Summary Details


This chapter explores Southern Presbyterian reactions to the Memphis kneel-ins in 1964 and 1965—including those of overseas missionaries—which were driven in part by concerns that the 1965 General Assembly, which was schedule to meet at Second Presbyterian, should be relocated. Race relations within the Presbyterian Church in the United States are described to establish a context for viewing the controversy between mainline Presbyterians in the South and congregations that were alienated from the denomination's theological and social positions.

Keywords: Presbyterian Church in the United States; Carl R. Pritchett; Felix B. Gear; Presbyterian Survey; Presbyterian Outlook; Presbyterian Journal; foreign missionaries
