Calling a Church to Justice
by Gary B. Agee
Gary Agee offers a compelling look at the life and work of the visionary who found inspiration in his Catholic faith to fight for the principles of liberty and justice. Born into slavery, Rudd achieved success early on as the publisher of the American Catholic Tribune, one of the most successful black newspapers of its era, and as the founder of the National Black Catholic Congress.
Even as Rudd urged his fellow Black Catholics to maintain their spiritual home within the fold of the Catholic church, he called on that same church to live up to what he believed to be her cardinal teaching, "The Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man".
