I study the transformation of the movement, from its origins in the Catholic Church in the 1960s, to the influx of evangelical Christians into the movement in the early 1980s.

Fly In The Buttermilk: The Life Story Of Cecil Reed, Cecil Reed, Priscilla Donovan Jan 1993

Fly In The Buttermilk: The Life Story Of Cecil Reed, Cecil Reed, Priscilla Donovan

Singular Lives: The Iowa Series in North American Autobiography

Born in 1913 in Collinsville, Illinois, Cecil Reed has lived all his life in the Midwest as a black man among whites. This self-styled fly in the buttermilk worked among whites with such skill and grace that they were barely aware of his existence—unless he wanted to get a bank loan or move into their neighborhood. Now, in his lively and optimistic autobiography, he speaks of his resilience throughout a life spent working peacefully but passionately for equality.
