Lincoln Rice has been a member of the Casa Maria Catholic Worker in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, since 1998. He earned his Ph.D. in moral theology from Marquette University in 2013 and has published two books. Healing the Racial Divide (2014) challenges the manner in which racial justice has been traditionally addressed in Catholic theology by examining the insights of Dr. Arthur Falls, the African-American physician who founded the first Catholic Worker in Chicago. The Forgotten Radical Peter Maurin (2020) was edited by Dr. Rice and contains essays by Catholic Worker co-founder Peter Maurin.
As the Catholic Worker movement confronts anti-Black racism more earnestly, questions arise about whether taking an active anti-racism stance can be reconciled with Catholic Worker anarchism, specifically when dealing with the state.
