In this episode of Peter’s Field Hospital, I am joined by Nate-Tinner Williams and Dawn Eden Goldstein to discuss the history of African American Catholicism, racism in the Church, and the Catholic response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
In the second half of the podcast, Nate and I discuss the unique gifts that the black community brings to the Church, the challenges facing black Catholics in the US, and evangelization in the black community.
