Albert Einstein, an immigrant Jew who escaped Nazi Germany, witnessed first-hand the rampant racism of the United States and was vocal in his condemnation of it. His creative talents as a musician helped him nurture a deep and lasting friendship with Marian Anderson, the great African-American opera singer who suffered the effects of racism throughout her legendary life and career. Their brilliant mutual gifts of creativity and music helped them create a soul friendship that rose above and beyond the racist culture in which they lived.
Brother Mickey McGrath, OSFS is an award-winning Artist, Author, and story-teller who believes that “beauty will save the world.” He is the 2023 recipient of the Marianist Award given by the University of Dayton to people who promote the intellectual life of the church. His most recent book, MADONNAS OF COLOR, has been awarded by various Catholic publishing associations.
