Abstract 

The author examines the racially segregated structure of the Methodist Church in America. While many churches allowed racially integrated worship, these churches often struggled to attract African-American congregants. On the other hand, other Methodist churches refused to allow non-white congregants. The article also describes the arrest of four Cleveland-area white Methodist ministers in Jackson, Mississippi, where they had traveled to try to help integrate Methodist churces.
