By Gardiner H. Black Bishop: Edward T Demby and the Struggle for Racial Equality in the Episcopal Church. Many of us were not surprised when black Episcopalians were specifically excluded from C. Eric Lincoln and Lawrence H. Mamiya's study The Black Church in the African-American Experience (Duke University Press, 1990). To those who perceive the Episcopal Church as the preserve of America's elite, a denomination which immediately comes to mind when we think of the quintessential "WASP," "black Episcopalian" is a virtual oxymoron.

Meeting at an African American college in North Carolina in 1959, a group of black and white Episcopalians organized the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity and pledged to oppose all distinctions based on race, ethnicity, and social class. They adopted a motto derived from Psalm 133: ""Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is, for brethren to dwell together in unity!"" Though the spiritual intentions of these individuals were positive, the reality of the association between blacks and whites in the church was much more complicated. Episcopalians and Race examines the often ambivalent relationship between black communities and the predominantly white leadership of the Episcopal Church since the Civil War. Paying special attention to the 1950s and 60s, Gardiner Shattuck analyzes the impact of the civil rights movement on church life, especially in southern states. He discusses the Church's lofty goals―exemplified by the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity―and ignoble practices and attitudes, such as the failure to recognize the role of black clergy and laity within the denomination. The efforts of mainline Protestant denominations were critically important in the struggle for civil rights, and Episcopalians expended a great deal of time and resources in engaging in the quest for racial equality and strengthening the missionary outreach to African Americans in the South. Shattuck offers an insider's history of Episcopalians' efforts, both successful and unsuccessful, to come to terms with race and racism since the Civil War.

Pretty technical and written by an Episcopalian for Episcopalians. As someone who got involved tangentially (Greenville, MS, in 1965) I'd hoped for more grassroots anecdotes, first-person interviews, oral history, quotes, etc, and less 'organizational detail'. Still, a useful resource.

This book helped me to understand the difficult process by which the Episcopal Church worked to overcome its institutional racism over the past 200 years. It's not always a very pretty story, but it definitely needs to be told.

This book should be requried reading for all people of faith in the US - we need to understand the history of the church's complicity in slavery to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.

Shattuck's work is a helpful historical overview as one seeks to understand the Episcopal Church's dealings with race. Unfortunately, his overwhelming desire to critique the Episcopal Church leaves this work unbalanced, uncharitable, and at times imprecise.

Shattuck seems to operate out of the assumption that in the history of the Episcopal Church, all white individuals were either racist or 'paternalist.' Shattuck uses the word 'paternalist' an astonishing number of times through the book, typically two to three times per page. His overuse of this word rapidly flattens out all sorts of more subtle distinctions that could be made about the diverse attitudes of individual white Episcopalians through the centuries.

Shattuck seems to have an overriding desire to point out the inadequacies of all white efforts at racial equality instead of highlighting those moments where individuals, either black or white, pushed back against the dominant racist culture in courageous ways. Attending to the former without the latter results in a narrative that feels unbalanced and, therefore, incomplete.

This work fills a gaping whole in the published histories of the Episcopal Church. Unfortunately, the author's passion for polemics hurts the overall product.

This thoroughly researched volume is much needed. Clearly written and well documented, Shattuck's book provides an excellent overview of the history of Episcopalians and race. This book helpfully points the way to possibilities for further research in this important area: the involvement of mainline denominations in race relations and social change. Highly recommended.
