The Racialization of America: A Conversation about Race


The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism and Loyola Press published Everyone Belongs, an illustrated children's book addressing racism, earlier this year. This week, it was announced that the book has been awarded a gold medal in the Religion/Spirituality category of the 2020 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. Everyone Belongs encourages conversations about what our faith calls us to do, especially now, as our country grapples with the realities of racial injustice.

In a new episode of our podcast, MCC from the Capitol, we address similar topics seen in Everyone Belongs. With The Racialization of America: A Conversation about Race, we tackle hard questions, such as, how can we address the racism of our past and the systemic racism that continues to exist in the present? Guests Joyce Jones, program director for racial harmony for the Archdiocese of St. Louis, and Jeff Schulenberg, facilitator of the social justice commission at Sacred Heart parish in Valley Park, discuss the seminar they offer parishes called "The Racialization of America."
