- Pamphlet urges church leaders to educate youth on issues of race reconciliation and brotherhood. Strong statements on the need for advocacy of integration and interracial actions. "The world's number one color problem, the white race, has even infected the English language. 'White' is synonymous with 'good,' "black' with 'bad,' and 'yellow' with 'coward.'" Discussion on race includes the Japanese in the wake of internment. Stokes (1916-2002) obtained her religious education at Abyssinian Baptist Church, and was the first African American woman to receive a doctorate in religious education (Columbia Teachers College, 1952). She later became an advocate of black liberation theology. Thomas (1906-1981) was a noted missionary for the Presbyterian Church and wrote prolifically on ministries in Asia and Africa.
