About-

In a narrative that has urgent significance for every church congregation facing the racial dilemma of mid-twentieth century America, Howard Thurman tells the dramatic story of the founding of the first fully integrated church in the United States--the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco.

Dr. Thurman, cofounder and long time minister, gives a complete and intimate picture of the beginnings of Fellowship Church, its early problems, experiments, and successful attainment of complete interracial unity. In simple, moving terms he describes the everyday events of church life--worship services, choir practice, church school, etc. - against the background of a multiracial congregation. Through his genius the reader experiences the anxious moments of forming new patterns of organization, the thrill of new and unexpected allies, of vistas opening into the future.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"An absorbing study - both of a remarkable man and of his remarkable church, whose impact will be felt in San Francisco and elsewhere for many years."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"This is a moving and challenging story of a really notable social and religious experiment - which is now proved to be a permanent accomplishment. . . . The book is a fascinating story of a great man's pioneering labors in awaking a considerable segment of American Christianity to its duty and privilege of racial fellowship."
- Witness
