Abstract 

In this excerpt from his book manuscript, prominent civil rights activist Ed King discusses his eventual decision to leave the Methodist Church's "traditional white church community" and instead administer to an African American spiritual congregation. King includes a letter he wrote that explains the details of his estrangement from the segregationist Methodist Church in Mississippi. In the letter, King concluded that perhaps the best way to exercise his Christian love was to become a minister for an African American church.
