Although Catholics of Black African descent represent nearly 25% of the over one billion Latin Rite Catholics throughout the world, in more than 59 countries, they only account for an estimated 3% (3 million) of all Catholics in the United States.
Perhaps it is because of their under-representation in society and in the Church, that the conversion of Black Americans from Protestantism, Agnosticism, and other faith traditions to the Catholic Church remains to be one of the best kept secrets in the history of North American Christianity.
BlackAmericanCatholic.COM was created for Black Americans to tell their story about how they discovered or rediscovered the truth and found a home in the only Church that Christ Jesus established for them through His Apostles. If a people don’t bear witness to their own story, no one else will.
