Taking a Class to Jackson, MS.

In March, I took a group of students from Ashland University down to Jackson, MS, as part of my class   Religion and the Civil Rights Movement. We worked with Voice of Calvary Ministries, met with veterans of the movement and those currently engaged in issues of justice and reconciliation.
We attended a Mission Mississippi prayer breakfast and Dolphus Weary and Neddie Winters both spent time with the group. As the week progressed I discovered that questions I raised in my book about justice and reconciliation have generated some discussion within Voice of Calvary and Mission Mississippi.
