6/11/08: Nobody Knows - Blacks and the Mormon Priesthood

Salt Lake City, UT – In June of 1978, leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received the "Revelation on Priesthood" - granting all men in the church the priesthood regardless of race. Wednesday on RadioWest, Doug talks to the creators of a new documentary called Nobody Knows - The Untold Story of Black Mormons. We'll look at the history that led up to that change, and ask how black members see their position in the church these 30 years later.
