Item description for Interrupting White Privilege: Catholic Theologians Break the Silence by Laurie M. Cassidy & Alexander Mikulich...
Overview White Catholic theologians have remained relatively silent on the topic of racism since publication in 1979 of the U.S. bishops' statement against racism, Brothers and Sisters to Us. In this hard-hitting study, prominent Roman Catholic theologians address the issue of white privilege. They maintain that systems of white privilege are a significant factor in shaping the evil of racism in our country and that most white theologians and ethicists remain ignorant of the part they play in maintaining racism. Contributors include Jon Nilson (Loyola Chicago), Mary Elizabeth Hobgood (Holy Cross), Barbara Hilkert Andolsen (Monmouth University), Charles Curran (Southern Methodist University), Roger Haight (Union Theological Seminary), Margaret Guider (Weston School of Theology), Margaret Pfeil (Notre Dame), and editors Laurie Cassidy and Alex Mikulich.
