Recalling the life of Sister Thea Bowman

As Black History Month nears its conclusion, The Catholic Spirit in St. Paul, Minn., has posted two items about a woman who was a giant in the black Catholic community, Sister Thea Bowman.

If you don’t recognize the name, you would do well to read this review of two recent books about the life of Sister Thea and this text of a speech she once gave to the U.S. bishops on what it means to be black in the church and society.
