Centering Black Catholics, Reimagining American Catholicism

Notre Dame Cressler Poster 03-22-2018 previewI recently had the privilege to lecture at the University of Notre Dame on the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Black Catholic Movement in April 1968. The lecture, “Centering Black Catholics, Reimagining American Catholicism,” was sponsored by the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism. The Cushwa Center supported some of the dissertation research that eventually became my book Authentically Black and Truly Catholic, so it was especially cool to come full circle, as it were.

You can actually watch a recording of my April lecture on YouTube, here. I also just published a revised and condensed version of my lecture at Zocalo Public Square, here.
