Gerald Forshey to Bishop Brashares

Doc # 

In this letter to Bishop Brashares, author Gerald Forshey warns him that Seth Granberry, the pastor of Capitol Street Methodist Church, planned to have Brashares arrested if he attempted to integrate worship there during the upcoming Sunday services. In a postscript, Forshey suggested that Brashares try to contact civil rights leaders Ike Leggett or Bishop Marvin Franklin to celebrate the Holy Communion as an alternative to the services. Forshey said that Leggett had already refused to do it; he also insinuated that Franklin had left to avoid the task.
