An Analysis of the Christian Left in the United States

Kathleen Schultz

Abstract


In the early 1960s, when southern and northern clergy marched, led, and preached their congregations into the storm of civil rights activity, many Americans first awakened to a practical understanding of what U.S. blacks had long recognized: the historically progressive role that religion had played in their struggles for freedom and dignity. Twenty years later, it is more and more commonplace to see a radical Christian contingent in a prominent place in marches, demonstrations, and confrontational protest.
