Description: This pamphlet, sponsored by the American Council of Christian Churches(ACCC) based in New York, NY, put forth the resolution reached during the ACCC’s 16th Spring Convention which addressed the issue of racial segregation within the Christian church. The ACCC claimed that, “Segregation within the church on racial, linguistic, and national lines is not unchristian nor contrary to the specific commands of the Bible.” This pamphlet belonged to Guilford College student Beth Taylor, who participated in the May, 1963 sit-in demonstration against segregation at the Greensboro S&W Cafeteria. Taylor was arrested during the protest on charges of trespassing.
