FROM SLAVE TO PRIEST.
The Inspirational Story of Father Augustus Tolton.
by Sister Caroline Hemesath.
The great legacy of this first black priest, and his courage will be a source of strength and hope for those who face persecution for their faith. In American history, many black people have achieved success and made contributions to our society. Father Tolton faced a different source of prejudice, an opposition from within the Church, the one institution he relied on for support. The author interviewed people who knew Father Tolton personally, including St. Katharine Drexel, and presents a portrait of a great Catholic.
