Creator:Gillespie, G. T.
Title:Christian view on segregation; November 4, 1954
Date:1954 Nov. 4

From the McCain (William D.) Pamphlet Collection; In this pamphlet published by the White Citizens' Council of Winona, Mississippi, Gillespie states that racial separation is the way to support racial harmony. He says that Soviet Communists are behind the Civil Rights movement, because they want to break down the barriers between races so that racial amalgamation will occur. He contends that school integration will lead to intermarriage, and he cites Biblical and pseudoscientific reasons that segregation must continue. He also quotes Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Booker T. Washington.
