Will Campbell is a preacher from Amite County, Mississippi. He now lives in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, where he is the Director of the Committee of Southern Churchmen. He has many friends who are Klan members, and he ministers to them as he does his liberal and radical friends. He is the author of Brother to a Dragon Fly, and his writings reflect a keen understanding of the “white ghetto. ” The above is an excerpt of a talk Campbell delivered on April 10, 1980, to a panel on Ku Klux Klan resurgence, sponsored by the Nashville Panel, the Interdenominational Ministerial Fellowship and the Nashville Association of Rabbis, Priests and Ministers, with funding from the Tennessee Committee for the Humanities. (1980)
