"Tremont, along with First Baptist Church and Steward Chapel, those churches became the nerve center of the (civil rights) movement," local historian Andrew Manis said. Manis, a Middle Georgia State College history professor, authored the book "Macon Black and White: An Unutterable Separation in the American Century."
"Whoever was pastor of these churches, especially a church like Tremont, which was downtown, would have some significant influence in the black community of a city like Macon from the 1880s on," he said.
Still, Manis said Tremont is a historic building that should be preserved.
Manis, who is white, says that because many of the white churches in Macon did not support integration during the civil rights movement, he proposes a kind of reparation so to speak.
"Put some money in a pot to preserve the building. ... Let white congregations lead the way in that, and if that would happen then this silly idea of replacing a historic church with a (Dunkin' Donuts) could lead to some action on the part of the white community in Macon."
Manis said that could be an opportunity for white churches to say: "We were wrong then, but we can be right now."
