[01/23/21]   Dr. Cheryl White has co-authored a book (with Fr. Peter Mangum and historian W. Ryan Smith) on the lives of the five priests who died in the 1873 Yellow Fever epidemic in Shreveport, and the resulting research process led to the Vatican opening a formal canonization cause for them. There is now a new full-length documentary forthcoming on their remarkable lives, also highlighting the history and culture of Shreveport and northern Louisiana. Many thanks to the LSUS Foundation for their generosity in making this possible.
