BLACK CATHOLIC THEOLOGY: A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE
CYPRIAN DAVIS, O.S.B.
[How did Black Catholics at certain historical moments understand the implications of the Catholic faith and how did they live this faith? How is this faith a testimony of liberation?

The implications of this faith have been articulated by Black Catholic laymen at the Black Catholic congresses of the 19th century and in the lives of Black saints.]
