African American Catholics: Welcome

top box

National Office of Black Catholics

The archives for this important African American Catholic organization is housed at a non-CRRA institution. We are providing a link to the collection because of its importance to the topic.


Much of the information included in this research guide is taken from a "Collection Highlights" article by Rose Fortier from the Winter 2015 CRRA Newsletter. Thanks, Rose.


Welcome to this CRRA research guide designed to link users of the Catholic Portal to information about African American Roman Catholics. It will point the user to books and other materials in the Portal, and will directly link to relevent special collections, both print and electronic. We hope you will find this guide useful.
