dc.description.abstractProblem. The problem of the dissertation is to determine the most effective strategic approaches to achieving the racial desegregation of The Methodist Church. The problem is posed by the fact that The Methodist Church, both on its local church and connectional levels, is deeply involved in the practice of racial segregation despite its frequently reiterated stand of opposition to all racial discrimination and segregation. It is hypothesized that desegregation can be achieved in The Methodist Church through planned strategy. In determining the effectiveness of strategies leading toward desegregation, it is assumed that they must be consistent with (1) the appropriate Methodist goal of a fellowship which is racially inclusive, (2) appropriate ethical presuppositions, (3) relevant principles and findings which have been contributed by the social sciences, (4) limitations and possibilities inherent in the institutional structures of The Methodist Church, and (5) limitations and possibilities suggested by the relationships between The Methodist Church and the wider community and culture of which it is a part.
