College Theology Society Book Award Winner
The U.S. bishops' conference issued its statement against racisim, Brothers and Sisters to Us, more than 35 years ago, yet white Catholic theologians have been relatively silent on the issue--until now. In this hard-hitting study, prominent Roman Catholic theologians address the issue of white privilege, maintaining that systems of white privilege are a significant factor in shaping the evil of racism in our country.
In addition to the original essays, Interrupting White Privilege includes study guide questions for each chapter as well as resources for further inquiry and action.
