#RRBC #NOVEMBER JJF “SPOTLIGHT” #Author, @Sharrislaughter #RRBCSA #RRBC_Community





Shirley Harris-Slaughter is the author of Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community which was written to address a need to preserve Catholic history in her local community.  She has re-released this beautiful guide and is sharing it with us 

Here is her SA month’s schedule:

Blog Blast: 11/19/20

“Bring On The Spotlight” Radio Show: 11/19/20

“SPOTLIGHT” Author Support Day: 11/23/20

“Who’s On The Shelf?” Interview: 11/26/20


Our Lady of Victory by Shirley Harris Slaughter


This is a second edition with updates on the state of this historic church. In the original publication files were lost then resurfaced with content altered along with missing photos during transition from one publisher to another. Such is the fate of an Independent Author.

This book evolved out of years of frustration at the total disregard and lack of respect for the contributions of Black Catholics in the city of Detroit. The author says, “We are not mentioned in the pages of history along with the other Catholic churches that sprung up during the World War II era, and that needed to be corrected.” The author did fulfill one dream since publication … that this church can now be found on the web even though it has merged with another church. It is now called Presentation-Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church.


Shirley is our “SPOTLIGHT” Author for the entire month of November.

  1. Congratulations Shirley! Rooting for you this month and looking forward to your special events this month. Enjoy! BTW We never made it to the train station on Devils night and are surprised that the news did not report on the event at all.


    1. Yeah John, I was wondering about it. I didn’t keep up with it like I should have that’s why I was hoping you could find out. Did you see the lights? I live in Oak Park where they do 4th of July fireworks and its never reported. So Detroit has to have a better press corp to handle the news that comes out of the city. Oak Park does too.

      Hope to see you on Saturday for RNH and I really appreciate how supportive you have been with all the zoom meetings. Thank you very much.


    1. Bette, talk about shining. I’m all over facebook with my new haircut and its the talk of the town. So people keep me shining and I’m so grateful.

      Thank you so much.
