We’re in Americus, Georgia, at Koinonia Farm. Koinonia is a Christian farm community that was the backwater Selma and Montgomery of the Civil Rights Movement (way before Selma and Montgomery). It was here that Whites and Blacks worked side by side for equal pay in the fields. And this was segregated southern Georgia in the late 1940s. One of the community co-founders, Clarence Jordan, went on to write the Cotton Patch Parables. The parables revolved around Jesus coming to earth, not 2,000 years ago to the Middle East, but rather in the 1940s to southern Georgia. What happened at Koinonia was not without a lot of struggle. There were drive by shootings, Klansmen burning crosses across from Koinonia, local stores boycotting selling things to the farm… When Jordan was approached about buying the farm out (at a significant price), he said it would be like selling his soul.
