In 2015, Bishop Edward K. Braxton of Belleville, Illinois issued a Pastoral Letter, “The Racial Divide in the United States: A Reflection for the World Day of Peace 2015.” In 2016, he published the companion Pastoral Letter, “The Catholic Church and the Black Lives Matter Movement: The Racial Divide Revisited.” Since the publication of these and other writings, Bishop Braxton has lectured nationally, becoming a leading voice in the Catholic Church on improving race relations. The bishop’s writings and addresses are intended to invite individuals and groups to enter into conversations about important and sensitive subjects without judging others in the hope of attaining greater understanding, mutual respect, and realistic efforts to bridge the racial divide.

Bishop Braxton’s lecture is a part of the annual Tolton Week Events at CTU which highlight and promote the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program, a theological education, formation, and scholarship program for Black Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago.  Besides this lecture, there will be an Open House on the Tolton Program March 2 at 6:30 p.m. in Rm. 339.
 
All events are free and open to the public.
