160: Thoughts on the Black Catholic Experience (w/ Shannon Wimp Schmidt)

160: Thoughts on the Black Catholic Experience (w/ Shannon Wimp Schmidt) June 1, 2022

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Shannon Wimp Schmidt, one of the co-authors of Fat Luther, Slim Pickin’s: A Black Catholic Celebration of Faith, Tradition, and Diversity, to talk about some of her thoughts on the black Catholic experience.

This is a topic I’ve had a lot of requests to tackle on the show and I’m so pleased, and grateful, to have Shannon as a guide this week. Her insights are phenomenal and, I hope, helpful for those within the Church who want to learn more about this perspective and those who are considering converting to Catholicism and wondering – as a black person – how their identity, culture, and experience, can fit into the Catholic Church.

It’s a fantastic conversation.
