Catholic Worker Teaching Guide: 1950s

The Catholic Worker in the 1950s

Many of the themes of the Catholic Worker's writing in the1940s continued into the 1950s. Condemnation of the draft, the war in Korea, and the expansion of nuclear bombs in the Truman and Eisenhower presidencies was a regular part of the Catholic Worker. A newer theme that increases in focus for the Catholic Worker is also related to the Civil Rights Movement and working to end segregation.
