Abstract 

The author compares the perspectives of different community members in Jackson, Mississippi, in response to the arrest of two biracial groups of worshippers after they attempted to attend services at Capitol Street Methodist Church, and the Galloway Memorial Methodist Church, respectively. Several ministers, including Reverend Seth W. Granberry and Reverend Dr. J. W. Leggett, defended the policy of segregation at the churches. Ed King's civil rights work was mentioned, along with the facts of his estrangement from white Methodist groups.
