Description

This is the cover of a 24-page booklet entitled The Bible Answers Racial Questions that was sent to Judge Garrity anonymously. The booklet lists Biblical passages that employ the words "white," "black," "color," or similar key phrases and analyzes their applicability to 20th century race relations in the United States. The booklet's overall argument is that the Bible supports segregation and that efforts to integrate society betray the will of God.
