Summary
"Located in the 'Holy Land' of Kentucky, fifty miles west of the legendary site of the fictional Shelby family plantation of Uncle Tom's Cabin, is the motherhouse of the Sisters of Loretto. In the early nineteenth century, this borderland region was a place where religious, racial, and cultural identities were formed and shaped by social and political forces. Of particular concern to the founders of Loretto, in light of their religious beliefs and lived experience, was the institution of slavery. In the 1970s Sister Mary Luke Tobin encouraged Sister Joan Campbell, who had taught at Jackson State University in Mississippi during the Civil Rights era, to examine the role of women of color in Loretto history, particularly in the years before the Civil War. For more than twenty years, Sister Joan conducted extensive on-site interviews and scholarly research in libraries, archives, and government offices. By 2000 she had collected a body of research that supported the erection of the Loretto slave memorial at the Loretto Motherhouse. Prior to her death in 2007, Sister Joan left to others her unfinished manuscript and files of historical research. This book represents the collective scholarship and research of many Loretto women past and present. Our intention is to open further inquiry into the world of early Loretto women, whose racial and cultural identities shaped their lives and mission, just as living in a global society shapes ours today"--Page 4 of cover
