J. Russel Hawkins: When God Supported Jim Crow: Segregationist Christians, Civil Rights, and the Challenge of Orthodoxy in a Liberal Democracy

J. Russell (Rusty) Hawkins graduated from Wheaton College (IL) in 1999. After earning a master's degree in American History from Montana State University, Rusty served for a year with AmeriCorps as a literacy program coordinator in the public schools of Boston, Massachusetts. He earned his doctorate degree in American History from Rice University in 2009. He is currently Professor of Humanities and History at Indiana Wesleyan  University and is the author of The Bible Told Them So: How Southern Evangelicals Fought to Preserve White Supremacy, which argues that white Christians' theology informed and shaped their resistance to the civil rights movement in the South.
