Sister Thea Bowman was a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration, called the “Minister of Joy” because of her tireless ministry to the African American community.  Thea converted at 9 years old and at 15 knew she wanted to become a sister. After receiving her Ph.D. she taught for 16 years, started the Black Catholic Studies at the University of New Orleans, and founded the Black Catholic Religious Institute. Seeing the need to combat racism and prejudice, and to share the rich heritage of the African American culture, Thea shared the Gospel by writing, speaking, and singing at conferences throughout the U.S. She died of cancer at 52.
