This recording consists of three separate speakers. The first speaker is Dr. J. Edward Carothers, a Methodist minister. He discusses different conflicts, originating in the church, in which the church often fails to acknowledge their part. He urges ministers to work together to awaken America to the covert violence that surrounds them. The second speaker is Bishop F.D. Jordan, the 72nd Bishop of the AME church. Bishop Jordan discusses the history of the AME church as well as the importance of Christian love towards all human beings. The last speaker is Monsignor J.J. Egan, a Roman Catholic priest and avid social activist. Egan speaks on the need for strong revolutions across the world. He reminds the audience that Christianity was birthed in violence with the hanging of Christ on the cross. He answers the question “What is the Catholic church doing about violence?” and discusses the importance of acknowledging violence of the mind as much as physical violence.
