More Than Equals: Racial Healing for the Sake of the Gospel

Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, 1993 - Race relations - 244 pages
In this challenging autobiographical account by the son of a black civil rights activist and a Vermont Yankee, the authors candidly share about their struggle for racial harmony in the deep south. Writing out of their experiences in Jackson, Mississippi over the last 15 years, they dare to ask and answer questions we would rather pretend we never had. Yet despite much pain and searching they insist that there is hope, and that men and women of different races can live and work together in peace.
