From preaching to meddling : a white minister in the civil rights movement

Walter, Francis X., Rev., (author.). Suitts, Steve, (writer of foreword.).


While recounting the people and communities he joined in fighting against the white South's racial order in rural Alabama, Walter candidly shares questions, dilemmas, and perceptions of his own shortcomings. His is an engaging portrait of momentous times and of himself as both conflicted priest and crusading white Southerner.
