Interreligious and Interdenominational Cooperation in the Civil Rights Movement.
Shermis, Michael
This study examined the interreligious and interdenominational dimensions of the civil rights movement as reflected in the pages of the "Christian Century," the leading liberal, Protestant, intellectual periodical during the 1960s. Cooperation among organizations such as the National Council of Churches and other Jewish and Catholic organizations throughout the United States played a very important role in the movement. The reports, commissions, conferences, and special events put together by religious groups demonstrated a genuine interreligious and interdenominational dimension throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Letter-writing campaigns, lunch counter sit-ins, and marches and demonstrations were participated in by members of all faiths and supported by a wide variety of religious organizations. The influence of "Christian Century" itself on the movement is also described. A 26-item bibliography is included. (DB)
