Abstract 

In this interview, white Episcopal bishop and civil rights activist Duncan Gray discusses his advocacy of racial equality. He talks about the rampant racial injustice that he observed during his youth. Gray notes his presidency of the Mississippi Council during the early 1960s, which allowed for interracial discussion on issues of segregation. Gray mentions his controversial 1956 speech "The Social Implications of the Christian Gospel", during which he argued that segregation defied the New Testament's message.
