    Part I begins with personal stories of oppression that shaped the lives of some prominent Black Presbyterians. Part II moves into highlights of their involvement in the Civil Rights Movement. Part III focuses on the Presbyterian denomination as it grappled with the moral issues that emerged from the Civil Rights Movement.
