The authorized biography of a modern-day heroine, one of the most significant figures in modern American Catholicism.
Thea Bowman was a Black girl born in civil-rights-era Memphis, Mississippi who joined a convent of white Catholic sisters in Wisconsin, and went on to inspire millions of all faiths and none. She fought prejudice, sadness, and brought joy to others even during her struggle with cancer and long after her untimely death in 1990.
Thea s motto, Let me live until I die! comes alive in this enlightening and moving work that includes never-before-seen archival writings, interviews, and photographs.
