The Edge of the Ghetto. A Study of Church Involvement in Community Organization.
Fish, John; And Others
This research document reports on the involvement of several local Protestant and Roman Catholic churches with a mass community organization in a racially changing area of Chicago. The corporate participation of churches in this social and political experiment and others of its kind has been the subject of much controversy. The research is an inquiry into the interaction between churches and the community organization, and into the meaning of this interaction for the participants. It describes the founding and development of the Organization for the Southwest Community (OSC); the characteristics of several church parishes in the southwest Chicago area and how they participated in the OSC; and the attitudes of church members toward the involvement of their church in the OSC. An appendix describes research methods and theoretical framework, and includes the questionnaire on attitudes. (author/mf)
