Black Faith Matters

Year Award Category Result
2020 Chicago / Midwest Emmy Awards Outstanding Achievement for Public Affairs Program – Single Program Nominated

The role of this documentary is to shed light on “one story” of the Black Catholic experience. An experience unknown to many in our church. An experience that, although unique, is relatable to the Black Catholic, specifically African American Catholic, experience throughout America. This film hopes to bring out the joy, pain and struggles that are faced in the Black Catholic community, specifically in the Trem√© area of New Orleans. This film also hopes to share the unique struggle found in youth and young adult ministry within the Black Catholic community. Whether through “America’s Original Sin”, classism, or various other social ills; we are witnessing this unique expression of our Catholic faith disappearing before our eyes.

Through the eyes of Dr. Ansel Augustine, the Psalm 119 Step Team (young adults that perform with Dr. Augustine), Ms. Pearl Dupart, and Deacon Allen Stevens; we see how this experience of Black Catholicism is a “gift to the church” as Sr. Thea Bowman said to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Our prayer is that this documentary, and what flows from it, will be used as another resource for our communities to address racism within our church and to create bridges of hope and understanding so that we may all be one Body of Christ.
