White Catholic’s Guide to Racism and Privilege

racism and privilegeGrowing up white and middle class, Fr. Daniel P. Horan, O.F.M., was shielded from seeing persistent, pervasive racism, and never thought much about racial justice except for what he read in history books. In the spring and summer of 2020, U.S. cities erupted in protests and racial tensions ran high following several high-profile killings of Black women and men at the hands of white police officers. Like many white Americans, Fr. Horan watched and listened. In his new book, A White Catholic’s Guide to Racism and Privilege, (Ave Maria Press, 2021), he shares what he has learned about uncovering and combating racial inequity and shows his fellow white Catholics how to become actively anti-racist and better allies to Black brothers and sisters. Fr. Horan earned a doctorate in systematic theology from the Boston College Theology Department and is the director of the Center for Spirituality and professor of religious studies and theology and philosophy at Saint Mary’s College in Indiana.
