Catholics for interracialism in Chicago, ages ago

Former Commonweal editor Peggy Steinfels reviews Oxford U. Press book about Chicago interracialism efforts in 1st half of 20th century and then some.

She finds names of people she knows from college days, as do I, from Jesuit days some years later.

Glory days of “Catholic action,” when a happy few fought a good fight, lovingly, giving witness to the truth — with minimal results, as I recall.

But witness mattered and matters still, I say.
