LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD: MORMONISM'S NEGRO DOCTRINE FORTY-TWO YEARS LATER
LESTER E. BUSH, JR. - HISTORIAN

2015 McMurrin Lecturer Lester Bush

Lester Bush will reflect on the forty-two years since his seminal article was published in Dialogue which undermined the standing historical narrative that the LDS Church's priesthood ban began with Joseph Smith. We invite Bush to consider the past forty years: what has changed, what has stayed the same, and what steps are yet necessary to bring about change.
