Deacon ArtDeacon Arthur Miller, who headed the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Black Catholic Ministries until it was eliminated last year (as was the Office of Hispanic Ministries), is still finding plenty of ways to inspire. An activist, author (of The Journey to Chatham, about his growing up in Chicago in the ’50s when he was a schoolmate of Emmet Till, whose murder helped spark the civil rights movement), and popular speaker, Deacon Art was recently arrested for blocking traffic as part of a Black Lives Matter Moral Monday protest in Hartford.

  1. It was a great interview and discussion, Maria. Tom and I listened intently, as we know Art. He’s an awesome man, preacher, devoted to the cause. We’re so lucky to have him in our state. We’re so lucky to have you doing such important interviews, Maria. Keep shining the light.
