Although Myrue Spivey grew up attending church with his devout mother, he became disillusioned with Christianity after seeing pastors live hypocritically. As a teenager living in Melbourne, Fla., in the early 1960s, he embraced the cause of black nationalism, seeking freedoms and political power for African Americans. With two friends, he sought “to riot and create ethnic divisions” in Norfolk, Va., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Melbourne.
