About this collection

African American Catholics of the United States contains over 200 images of African American clergy, religious, and laity, plus others in ministry to them, in parishes and schools, religious communities, and lay organizations since 1900.

Archives staff selected the images from the records of the Black and Indian Mission Collection, the Catholic Negro-American Mission Board, and the National Black Sisters Conference (NBSC). The Black and Indian Mission Collection and the Catholic Negro-American Mission Board are fundraising organizations founded by the U.S. Catholic bishops in 1884 and 1907 respectively, now administered by the Black and Indian Mission Office and allied with the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions. The NBSC is an advocacy and support association of African-American religious sisters founded in 1968.
