This chapter lays out a historiography of the role of religion in the civil rights struggle and introduces the concept of lived theology. It describes the book’s setting in Americus, Georgia and the special role that town played in the conflict over racial justice in the American South. The Introduction argues that to truly understand the theological conflict inherent in the racial struggle, scholars must engage ideas, arguments and tactics as they existed in community.
