Second Ministers' Manifesto, 1958.
WSB radio broadcast of "Witness," a public affairs program on the Second Ministers' Manifesto, 1958. In November 1957, after witnessing the school integration crisis in Little Rock, Arkansas, eighty members of the Atlanta Christian Council issued a statement of conscience discouraging city officials and ordinary citizens from pursuing a course of massive resistance to federal authority. Better known as the "Ministers' Manifesto," the statement called for moderation, communication between the races, racial amity, and most importantly, obedience to the law. One year later, after the Temple bombing in Atlanta aroused new fears of racial extremism, more than 300 ministers issued a second manifesto calling for the creation of a citizens' commission to debate alternatives to massive resistance.
