CHOICE Review

Bennett (Santa Clara Univ.) has written a superb study of the tensions between religion and race among black Methodists and Catholics in New Orleans between 1880 and 1920. He explores the complex, dynamic situation of African American members of the Methodist Episcopal and Roman Catholic denominations. After the failure of Reconstruction, southern states and churches moved toward increasing Jim Crow separatism, which culminated in the US Supreme Court's doctrine of "separate and equal" in the Plessy v. Ferguson case of 1896. Bennett provides important comparisons of Methodist and Roman Catholic leaders and church members who either resisted or supported racial separatism and the effects of this growing separatism on their identity. The majority of African American church members in both denominations preferred interracial worship settings. However, demeaning treatment such as being forced to sit in the back pews or being refused Communion or entrance to churches and the failure to appoint black bishops eventually led to separate churches, parishes, and seminaries. Bennett has a brilliant epilogue, "Religion and Baseball in New Orleans." ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and specialists in the field. L. H.
