11/15: Shannen Dee Williams on The Real Sister Act: Black Nuns and the Long Struggle to Desegregate in U.S. Female Religious Life
Dr. Shannen Dee Williams is a historian of the United States and the black Catholic diaspora and an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where she teaches courses in U.S., African-American, women’s, civil rights, and religious history. Williams’s research on the forgotten histories of black Catholic sisters has been supported by a number of fellowships and awards. In this talk, Dr. Shannen Dee Williams will chart the fiercely-contested entry of African-descended women and girls into the nation's historically white Catholic sisterhoods from the early nineteenth-century to the present day.
