Return engagement! Guest Speaker: Shannen Dee Williams (History, University of Tennessee) on the Hidden History of African-American Nuns
-- Dr. Williams is currently working on her book, “Subversive Habits: Black Nuns and the Long Struggle to Desegregate Catholic America.” She will return to SFC this spring to talk more about her groundbreaking study chronicling the epic journey of black Catholic sisters from their fiercely contested beginnings in the nineteenth century to the present day and the largely hidden history of the fight to dismantle racial and gender barriers in the U.S. Church and wider American society.
