First Declaration Statement By UBCL For General Convention, 1967
The emerging black power movement in the Church is well illustrated by the declaration prepared for the 1967 General Convention included in the Ad Hoc Clergy Committee publication, What is Happening to the Negro in the Protestant Episcopal Church?. Addressed to the national church leadership, it points out the exclusion of African Americans from positions of authority within the Church and demands address of these issues.
