Corita arrived into her creative identity in the 1960s amidst the protests in excess of the Vietnam War and the fight for civil rights.Responding to the adjustments prompted by Vatican II,her religious neighborhood, the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, experienced adoptedincreasingly progressive positions, and discovered colleagues within just the church, such asRev. Daniel Berrigan, S.J.,who had been having up vocal stances towards the draft, hunger, and pervasive challenges of racial and economic division.
