A panel discussion was held on three aspects of conservatism in the 1960s: evangelical conservatism, segregationists' contributions to mainstream conservatism, and the religious dimension of anticommunism. After the papers were presented, Mr. Schoenwald initiated a discussion with the panelists, who then responded to questions from members of the audience.

Stephanie Rolph talked about “'Race Is Only a Minor Concern': White Resistance and the Concealment of Race in the Civil Rights Era South.” Daniel Williams talked about “Tracing the Culture Wars in the 1960s: Richard Nixon and the Shift in Evangelical Politics from Anti‑Catholic to Anti‑Secular.” Laura Gifford talked about “'Girded with a moral and spiritual revival': The Christian Anti‑Communism Crusade and Conservative Politics.” Mr. Schoenwald moderated.

The 102nd annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians was held Wednesday, April 7 to Saturday, April 10, 2010. The panel “Conservatism in the 1960s” was held 1:45 p.m. April 8 at the Hilton Washington. close
