Book - 1990
Rate this:
Ochs (social studies, Georgetown Preparatory School, Rockville, Md.) moves toward an explanation of why the Catholic church failed to ordain significant number of black clergy until the 1930s by examining the experience of the Josephites, the only American community of Catholic priests devoted exclusively to evangelization of blacks. An illuminating account of institutional racism set within the broader context of both Catholic church history in America and the Afro- American struggle for equality.
