This chapter explores the interracialism movement in Chicago’s Roman Catholic communities in the 1930s and 1940s. Focusing on the experiences of three women, it chronicles the efforts of a group of Catholics to overcome the color line. The chapter shows that extensive cross-racial exposure allowed white Catholics involved in the interracialism movement to begin to see racialized structures of discrimination that existed in American society in ways that were unavailable to their white peers.

Keywords:   Roman Catholicism, Chicago, Illinois, interracialism, twentieth century, women
