Last Segregated Hour: The Memphis Kneel-Ins and the Campaign for Southern Church Desegregation
The spectacle of kneeling worshippers barred from entering the church made for a powerful image, and invited both local and national media attention. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including extensive interviews with students who led the kneel-ins and church members who opposed them, Haynes tells an inspiring story that will appeal not only to scholars of religion and history, but also to pastors and church people concerned about the Church's witness in a racially divided society.
