Report of Special Committee on Integration in Our Public School System
January 25, 1956
National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA
The National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA is an ecumenical fellowship of Christian groups.
This January 25, 1956 report makes recommendations as to how member churches of the National Council on Churches should work to support school desegregation in their communities. The recommendations reaffirm and advance a 1955 resolution adopted by the National Council of Churches which states: “Now that the Supreme Court has spoken (regarding segregation in the public schools) we urge that churches as represented in the Council accept the decision of the Court as the law of the land and endeavor as fully as possible, in the spirit of Christ, to realize an integrated public school system.”
