A group of African American ministers visited Washington yesterday to call on the Administration to step up its investigation. So far, the Justice Department says there’s no evidence of a conspiracy, but the black community believes that white supremacists are behind the rash of fires that have destroyed dozens of historic black churches in the past few years.
