Online exhibit: The Church Awakens: African-Americans and the Struggle for Justice

The Archives of the Episcopal Church USA has a fascinating new web exhibit that chronicles the relationship between the Episcopal church and African-Americans.

The exhibit contains a wealth of textual, visual and audio-visual material, including an in-depth look at the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity (ESCRU) and its participation in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s.
