African Saints Celebrated During Pilgrimage

Quick. In the next three minutes, write down the names of as many black Catholic saints as you can.
How many did you get? 20? 15? 10? 5?
This was the start of Dr. Camille Brown’s talk on African Saints during the Diocese’s recent pilgrimage to the National Shrine in Washington, D.C. Many in the crowd had two or three names of African saints by the end of the exercise, but had many more by the end of Dr. Brown’s talk.
