Abstract 

In this manuscript, prominent civil rights activist Ed King recounts the difficulties that emerged because of the integration of schools after King and his wife Jeannette returned to Mississippi in 1963. King noted the high incidence of white resistance to integration efforts in Mississippi public schools from the lower grades through the high schools. King and other activists tried to attract white "moderates" on the civil rights issue to understand the integrationists' goals. Another issue King recalled concerned the "white establishment" in Protestant churches; this group threatened to withhold funding and other support if racial integration of worship were to be enforced.
