Abstract:

Will Campbell: Radical Prophet of the South analyzes the social and religious thought of Will D. Campbell in its development and expression. Most of Campbell's efforts, were devoted to the civil rights movement and to improving race relations. By 1963, Campbell, while retaining progressive concerns, became disillusioned with traditional approaches to ministry and social activism, especially in the field of race relations. Consequently, his later social activism and religious activity occurred outside conventional structures. Campbell then engaged in social activism on an individual basis without the support of a major organization.

These endeavors involved an expanded interest beyond civil rights for African Americans in an effort to have a comprehensive approach to all human suffering. This broadened awareness included concern for the poor whites of the South, as well as other victims, including such different groups as prisoners and women as discriminated minorities. Campbell is also known for his writings, both fiction and non-fiction.
