THE WORD IN THE WORLD '76 BLACK APOSTOLATE

65.00

First edition, published by Society of the Divine Word, 1976

This book chronicles the Divine Word Missionaries willingness to engage with people of other races, creeds and ethnic origins. Establishing the first seminary for African-Americans, decades before the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, despite having been created in the Deep South where racial segregation was most prevalent. This book showcases a revolutionary philosophy by the standard of its time, documenting the plight of the word missionaries and their belief in the equality of all in the eyes of God. Including excerpts from the likes of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr; this is a truly informative and positive book.
