Lily Hardy Hammond was an activist in the social gospel movement who believed that the South could never solve its social, economic, and political problems while ignoring its racial injustice. She urges women to lead the way in harnessing the power of the social gospel to improve race relations in the 20th century South, and shows some examples of interracial peace and justice.

Well illustrated from photographs, depicting African American schools and students in the South, poor housing conditions, a respected African American doctor, etc.
