A story from The Charlotte Observer:
When a group of clergy approached evangelist Leighton Ford asking him to sign a letter to Charlotte’s black community after the death of George Floyd, he didn’t hesitate. Ford, a white man and brother-in-law of the late evangelist Billy Graham, has been urging Christians to meet the “demands of the Gospel” in the racial revolution for more than half a century.
