Lessons from the Saints of Africa

Lessons from the Saints of Africa

St. Benedict the Moor

By Claudia Mair Burney

During Black History Month we love to extol the virtues of Christians such as Sojourner Truth and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but little is known about other giants of faith whose contributions shaped Christian history. Be they sacred sages or holy fools, these African-born men and women are officially the real deal. Join us in celebrating the lives of 10 Saints of Africa, and find out what they can teach us about our own spiritual journeys.

Claudia Mair Burney is the author of novels "Zora and Nicky: A Novel in Black and White" and "Wounded: A Love Story", as well as the "Amanda Bell Brown Mysteries" and "The Exorsistah" series for teens.
