Handbook on Catholic School Integration.
Catholic Committee of the South, New Orleans, LA. Commission on Human Rights.
This 1956 pamphlet summarizes "scientific facts" about race and race relations from the point of view of the Catholic church and the desegregation of its schools. Discussed are the moral teachings of the Church, the scriptural support for racial equality, and the practicality of desegregation. The document refutes the racist notions about disease, intellectual inferiority, psychological problems and delinquency said to be prevalent among Negroes. The legal and constitutional basis for desegregation as well as the moral obligations of Catholics are noted. (NH)
