A New Citizenry In An Old South tells the story of the establishment and expansion of the first black congregation of the Church of Christ in the state of Georgia. Set in the middle of the Great Depression in the small rural town of Valdosta, Georgia, the author uncovers an extraordinary story of unparalleled achievement. The book describes the bitter irony that black preachers had to face as they implored their brothers and sisters to crown Jesus Christ Lord of their lives while living in a region of the country where Jim Crow was king.(1952) That which started as an outreach ministry in 1952 served as the beginning of the Southside Church of Christ. ... Later, an education wing was added to the South Lee Street edifice under the leadership of Brother Thomas O. Jackson.
