Question Description

(If you have not read the book, it is okay to use other sources) Your essay about R. Bentley Anderson’s Black, White and Catholic: New Orleans Interracialism, 1947-1956 is due in class on November 18, 2016. It should be typed and double-spaced. If you use direct quotations or paraphrase from the book you must cite the text.

Write a 3-5 page essay using the following questions as the foundation for your comments and analysis.

1. What made New Orleans such a unique American Catholic community, especially in terms of race?

2. Exactly what was meant by “Interracialism”? Why was interracialism such a threatening concept for so many people in New Orleans at that time?

3. Who are some of the leading Black and White Catholics working for Interracialism in New Orleans between 1947 and 1956? What characteristics do all of these people share regardless of their races? What does their support of Interracialism cost them? Why are they willing to pay these costs?

4. Why do you Catholic college students were so invested in working for the desegregation of Catholic institutions in New Orleans? How did their Catholic educations prepare them to challenge this system of injustice?

5. Having read this study of the efforts of Black and White Catholics to integrate their churches and other religious institutions in the middle of the 20th century, what do you think contemporary Catholics might learn from them about addressing racial injustices in today’s church and wider society?
