Female religious life in the Roman Catholic Church is an overlooked battleground of the long African American struggle for freedom, justice, and human dignity. In this talk, Dr. Shannen Dee Williams charts the diverse struggles waged by African American Catholic women and girls to desegregate the nation's white sisterhoods from the earliest decades of the U.S. Church through America's civil rights and Black power years. She also explores some of the extraordinary lengths that many white congregational leaders and individual sisters went to evade desegregation and uphold white supremacy within their ranks.
