Black and Mormon

Black and Mormon
Taking stock of Mormon progress on the developing role of blacks in the church The year 2003 marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the lifting of the ban excluding black members from the priesthood of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now available in paperback, the essays collected in Newell G. Bringhurst and Darron T. Smith's Black and Mormon look at the mechanisms used to keep blacks from full participation in the church, the motives behind the ban, and the kinds of changes that have--and have not--taken place within the church since the revelation responsible for its end.
