Event description

Description

With 2018 marking the fortieth anniversary of the 1978 revelation, which rescinded the proscription on black members of the LDS Church from priesthood ordination and temple admission, the topic of race and Mormonism is timely. Newell G. Bringhurst, PhD, will be discussing two primary causes of the priesthood and temple ban: the development of a Mormon ethnic "Ephraimite" identity and the shifting Mormon views on black slavery. This event is free an open to the public. Please join us!
