The Church and the Urban Negro

February 1968
America;2/10/1968, Vol. 118 Issue 6, p181
The article cites the response of the Catholic Church to the racism facing African Americans. It says that the Church faced the growing racial crisis with agony as the people of the Church are divided on the issue. To resolve the crisis, it states that the Church itself needs to be changed by freeing itself from the racist system, to listen to the African American leaders and to commit itself with money and power. The Church reordered its preoccupations, developed race relations and developed inner city ministry to serve the African Americans.
