Jesus and Justice

Check out the article in the most recent Christianity Today, about Billy Graham's decision to not segregate his Jackson, MS crusade in 1952, and how this shaped his ministry efforts during the turbulent civil rights years. It also mentions conversations Graham had with Dr. King about working together, eventually coming to the decision that they had far too different methods to make that work.

While Graham could not be called a champion for racial justice, maybe he did more that we give him credit for.
