ABSTRACT
The article presents an examination of the desegregation of Churches of Christ-affiliated Harding College (Harding University) in Searcy, Arkansas, in 1963 and explores how the Harding case provides insight on the awareness and concerns of religious southerners during the Civil Rights Movement. It explores the experiences of the school's first African American students and examines how the attitudes of the school's white students shifted during the movement. It discusses the multiracial nature of the Churches of Christ denomination and examines racial attitudes and tensions in the south during the Civil Rights Movement.
