Black and White Relations in the Church of God (Anderson) Movement

Civil Rights March 1965 --2.jpg

Exhibit Overview

Race relations affected all Americans throughout the 20th century, and Anderson University and the Church of God are no exception. This exhibit offers an overview of Black and White relations within the Church of God movement, and in turn within Anderson University.

The goal of this exhibit is not to provide exhaustive information, but rather to give a foundation to explore the Church of God movement's response to racial division. Throughout the exhibit, the different pages lead users to resources located at the Nicholson Library and the Anderson University & Church of God Archives. The user is encouraged to dig into these resources and formulate their own opinions and interpretations. 

This exhibit is divided into three sections: Understanding Systemic Racism in the North, Anderson University, and Church of God. The pages can be accessed in the sidebar at any time.

Happy Hunting! As always, the Anderson University and Church of God archives staff is willing to help you explore deeper. For more information about hours and contact information click here.
