Editorial Reviews

Review

"Many thanks to Diane Batts Morrow for bringing the history of this community to life. Everyone interested in American history or women's history, black history, or religious history must make room on their shelves for this book." - Jo Ann Kay McNamara, author of Sisters in Arms: Catholic Nuns through Two Millennia

Book Description

"Meticulous and inspiring scholarship. . . . The greatest contribution of Persons of Color and Religious at the Same Time is its sustained attention to race in the prisms of American Catholicism and women's religious life in the antebellum period."--Religious Studies Review

This groundbreaking study is a must-read for anyone interested in Catholic, women's, American, or African-American history. It's extremely well-written, and I believe that both scholars and casual readers will appreciate and enjoy this significant work.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful and very well researched book about the Oblate Sisters of Providence and the hardships they encountered in their founding and the early days of their congregation. The first order of Black sisters in the Catholic Church, they were ostracized not only by the secular Catholic community but other religious communities as well. This book is a testament to their tenacity to hold on to their belief that there was indeed a place for Black women in a life of consecration in the Catholic Church. There are many interesting facts in this work but one that is very integral to the sense of equality of the Oblate Sisters of Providence is the fact that they made no distinction of range of color either within their community or in accepting women to who wanted to join their community. Some black communities founded after them unfortunately did.

This book gives an accurate perspective on the progress made not only by the Oblates in their quest for recognition within the Church but by the Catholic Church as well.
