Does it make sense in the year 2015 to review a biography of Billy Graham? Is there any chance that a significant number of such evangelists will ever accept people of color as equals?

Graham’s eldest child, who now runs his father’s Evangelistic Association, “promoted Sarah Palin” for president in 2012 (after all those decades of make nice with the civil rights movement!).
