The Church and the Racial Divide: Reflections of an African American Catholic Bishop

by Edward K Braxton

"Reflections from an African American Catholic Bishop on the racial divide in the United States"--

The only Catholic bishop who has consistently written on race matters, Bishop Braxton begins this timely book with a probing personal introduction in which he describes his family's history and his experience as an African American that he brought to his ministry as a Catholic priest and bishop. In speeches, homilies, and pastoral letters--in some cases prompted by police shootings and the Black Lives Matter movement--he lays out a vision of healing for the church and the nation, informed by a quest for conversion, justice, and reconciliation.
