Part I of a month-long series on "Decolonizing the Church"
Co-sponsored by the Africana Studies Program at Villanova University.
How have citational practices among scholars contributed to the marginalization and erasure of Black Catholics in the history of the Church? Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Tia Noelle Pratt, a sociologist of religion specializing in systemic racism in the Catholic Church. Dr. Pratt received her PhD from Fordham University, and she is the President & Director of Research at TNPratt & Associates, LLC - an Inclusion and Diversity consulting firm. As a public scholar, Dr. Pratt has written for Faithfully, America, and Commonweal, and in 2020, she was a finalist for a Religion News Association Award. Pratt is currently working on her first book, Faithful and Devoted: Racism and Identity in the African-American Catholic Experience.
Moderated by Dr. Shannen Dee Williams, the Albert Lepage Assistant Professor of History at Villanova University.
