Growing Pains: How Racial Struggles Changed a Church and School
How racial struggles changed a church and school, a book by Chris Meehan, chronicles the struggle of black parents in Lawndale, IL, in the 1960s to find a place for their children in the nearby Christian school. A power struggle ensued, taking the matter to synod and inspiring the creation of the Office of Race Relations. Panel members will reflect on the past, present, and future of race relations.
