Preview

This book presents sixteen chapters addressing important issues, personalities, and movements in Latino religions in America. The book's purpose is to overthrow the longstanding stereotype that Latinos are politically passive and that their churches have supported the status quo, failing to engage in or support that struggle for civil rights and social justice. Individual chapters explore such varied topics as “The Mysticism and Social Action of Cesar Chavez,” “The Challenges of Being Latina, Catholic, and Feminist,” “Hispanic Churches in Faith-Based Community Organizing,” and “The Mexican American Cultural Center and the Politics of Cultural Empowerment”.
