What We Have Seen and Heard Document

On September 9, 1984 the ten Black Bishops of the United States published this document as a witness to the Black community. The Bishops sought to explain that evangelization is both a call and a response, it is not only preaching but witnessing. The first part of the document is about the shared gifts rooted in the African heritage. In part two they discussed the obstacles to evangelization that must be overcome.
