The Center for Cultural Engagement hosted a film screening and panel discussion for A Place at the Table: African-American Saints on the Path to Sainthood (2022) on November 29 in Heritage Hall. The event was planned during Black Catholic History Month with the intent for students to learn more about the lives of six African Americans that could be potentially canonized, while also discussing why there are currently no African American saints formally recognized by the Catholic Church.
