NO SOUTH OR NORTH by Roger H. Crook


Email this review


There is beginning to be available an increasing number of resource books written to help earnest and intelligent Americans, both Negro and white, to deal with the racial problems heightened by the Supreme Court ruling making segregation in the schools unlawful. This book, written by a Southern white Christian has been directed toward Southerners because they have the most radical adjustments to make in the near future. It is directed towards Christians because the problem of human relations is a moral one which must be approached in Christian terms. The author, Roger H. Crook, is Associate Professor of Religion at Meredith College (Baptist) in Raleigh, N. C. Dr. Crook gives a fair and objective history of the Negro in America which shows the development of today's misunderstanding and antagonism. There is a survey of Bible statements on race relations, and an appendix of denominational reactions to the Supreme Court decision of 1954. An excellent and timely book for students, parents, ministers and others who seek to come to grips with this pressing and disturbing problem.
