Sister Cora Marie’s Presentation on Racism

Sister Cora Marie is the first African American woman to join the Sisters of Mercy. She addressed an interdemoninational group in Murray Hall on May 6, and spoke about her experiences with racism. She challenged us to use collective power to change the systems and structures that maintain racial inequality. She encouraged everyone to read the pastoral letter produced by the US Catholic Bishops in Nov. 2018, entitled “Open wide our hearts, the enduring call to love.”
