Thursday, August 13 – Confronting Racism among Midwest Jesuits – c. 1965 ff Joe Sheehan, s.j.

Don Doll is the finest photographer that I have ever met and he emailed saying how much he liked what we did in yesterday’s post.  However, as a great photographer might, he added a note to his email that said, “Joe Sheehan deserves a better picture” and here it is.  In the picture, Joe is standing in front of St. Agnes Parish Church in Manderson, SD (the heart of the Pine Ridge Reservation).

Don, thank you for rescuing Joe Sheehan’s image: the picture we had found makes Joe look like he was made of wood.  You have given us the real character of this great man.
