Abstract 

In this session from the conference on Lived Theology and Civil Courage, racial equality leaders Victoria Gray Adams and Bob Moses talk about their work within the Civil Rights Movement. Adams refers to her work as a "walk of faith" through which she became deeply involved with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). She notes that the Civil Rights Movement's student arm was its most pioneering branch. She describes the business in Mississippi which she started to provide community members with access to good jobs. Adams describes the real Church as not a building but as people who were living out the social Gospel. Moses discusses activist Amzie Moore, whom he calls the "King Solomon" of the Mississippi Delta. Moses also talks about his work with SNCC. The interview closes with a question-and-answer segment that includes comments from civil rights leader Ed King.
