The group included members of numerous denominations and races. Supporters of the organization included prominent African American civil rights leader Mary McLeod Bethune and the group's membership also included celebrities such as tennis star H.W. "Bunny" Austin and various figures of political and international prominence such as Burmese President and Secretary-General of the United Nations U Thant and former first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Konrad Adenauer. MRA was prolific in its production of film, theatrical, radio, and print entertainment thanks to members like Peter Howard and Alan Thornhill who scored, wrote, and directed many of the MRA productions. MRA produced many feature films such as The Crowning Experience, Decision at Midnight, and Freedom that featured actors and singers such as Martin Landau, Muriel Smith and Cecil Broadhurst, as well as many theatrical productions such as Space Is So Startling, The Drugstore Revolution, and The Tiger.
