On writers about color; speakers and a saint of color, plus making all Catholic writers better known.
From Katy Carl, Dappled Things Editor in Chief: “And continuing on the theme of revered authors and their treatments of racial divisions in the American South, this was so good.”
Recommended by Karen Barbre Ullo, Managing Editor.
From “Purpose of This Website:”
Hi! I am Leticia Ochoa Adams. I wanted to create this website to help conference organizers find Catholic Speakers of Color. I am so proud of this project and hope that it is a beacon of hope for our Church moving forward.”
Recommended by Katy Carl, “Victoria Seed, Catholic Herald columnist, responds to another recent ‘where are the Catholic writers’ commentary by her colleague: ‘Hi, we’re over here.’ She kindly asked me and some other friends of the magazine for our opinions, which we were happy to share.”
Seed’s article includes lists of top-five “must-read Catholic authors from people who should know,” including Katy Carl and two other writer friends of Dappled Things, James Matthew Wilson, and Joshua Hren.
