This chapter presents oral history interviews with two nuns who are African Americans: Sister Mary Alice Chineworth, a superior general of the Oblate Sisters of Providence, a religious community founded during the nineteenth century specifically for black women; and Sister Gwynette Proctor, a member of the Sisters of Notre Dame deNamur in Maryland who has been a teacher, a principal, a youth minister, and executive director of the National Black Sisters Conference. The narratives capture the women's experiences over the past fifty years, beginning in the 1960s.
