Synopsis

The book explores the nature of public conscience, the influence of the generation that came of age in the Progressive Era on the modern civil rights movements, the nature of women s leadership, the dynamics of civil rights in a multi-racial context, and the way in which religion plays a role in broader social movements. These two ecumenical groups can be credited with contributing to relatively peaceful engagement with the civil rights movement in Seattle compared to other cities in the United States during the 1960s.
