From Slave to Priest: The Life & Legacy of Fr. Augustine Tolton.
Born into a black Catholic slave family, Father Augustine Tolton (1854-1897) conquered almost insurmountable odds to become the first black priest in the United States. He left behind a shining legacy of holy service to God, the Church and his people. In this powerful presentation, Catholic speaker, evangelist and Father Tolton scholar Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers’ eloquent tribute to Father Tolton’s tremendous legacy and courage, in the face of incredible prejudice within the Church and society, will be a source of strength and inspiration for Catholics today.
