America magazine publishes my feature on Father Twomey, including new info on his friendship with MLK

It is a joy to announce that today America magazine debuted online a feature article I wrote on Father Louis J. Twomey, S.J., whose biography I am writing. In "A Little-Known Jesuit's Battle for Racial Justice in the Deep South," I tell about Twomey's life, including his conversion from passive white-supremacist views to advocating for the human dignity of all, and share new information about his friendship with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

If you would like to stay abreast of my Father Twomey research, please subscribe to my Substack newsletter Matters Twomey. Also, if you're the praying sort (or even if you're not), please say a prayer for me as I seek a publisher for my biography of this great-souled Jesuit.
