Black Catholic History Month
Disciples Now tells us of this (formerly unknown to me) commemoration of the role of Black Catholics in our Church history:
"During Black Catholic History Month, all Catholics have an opportunity to learn how our history and heritage as Catholic Christians has been shaped by the witness, ministry and legacies of Black Catholics. And we have the opportunity to see those that carry history forward today."
Check it out. The site includes some profiles of prominent Black Catholic clergy.
