"Investigating how the LDS Church has fared in encouraging blacks to join its ranks, this collection of essays offers unique insights into one of the most sensitive issues facing the Mormon faith today. As the first volume to deal head-on with the conflicting attitudes that still exist within the church, Black and Mormon is required reading for anyone concerned with the history of racism, discrimination, and the Latter-day Saints."--Jacket." ;
