This chapter examines the story of civil rights activist Dorothy Tilly and her Methodist women's Fellowship of the Concerned in Georgia. It suggests that Tilly exemplified her Christian faith and the social reform potential of Wesleyan tradition of Protestantism to its fullest. She nudged white Southerners to do the right thing on race relations much as a mother might encourage her children and she lived a life that encouraged and fostered change, racial toleration, and inclusiveness.

Keywords:   Dorothy Tilly, civil rights activist, Fellowship of the Concerned, Methodist women, Georgia, race relations
