Fugitive Saints

Catholicism and the Politics of Slavery
  • By Katie Walker Grimes
$24.49
($29.00)

Today, many of their racial virtues seem like racial vices. This book proposes black fugitivity, as both a historical practice and an interpretive principle, to be a strategy by which the church can build new hagiographical habits. Rather than searching inside itself for racial heroes, the church should learn to celebrate those black fugitives who sought refuge outside of it.
