Personal Experiences of Racial Injustice
Witnesses to Racism

Here are heartfelt testimonies by members of the Archdiocese of Chicago — ten laypeople and one permanent deacon — about their own experiences with racial injustice. Each story approaches the question of racism from a different ethnic heritage and life history, but all of them drive home the reality that racism can only be dealt with if we get to know one another in honest, deep, and ongoing relationships. These "witness talks" were first developed as part of the Workshops on Racism and Ethnic Sensitivity for the parishes of the archdiocese. Chapters include:

  • What Happened There Still Haunts Me
  • Own Them, Claim Them, and Name Them
  • No Melting Pot, but a Delicious Stew
  • Real or Imagined
  • Wounds That Leave Deep Scars
  • We Wear the Mask
  • I Love Who I Am
  • The Scars Have a Deep Effect
  • Going Out of Our Comfort Zones
  • Get It Right
  • Let Us Open the Doors
