‘They Have Their Place’: Race And Identity In The Mormon Church

Through interrogating stories told by white Latter-day Saints to explain racial difference and justify subordinating and excluding people of color from full participation in the Church, this panel seeks to understand the past and present “place” of people of color in Mormonism, including how minority members and converts were and are viewed, understood, conceptualized, and defined by the Church hierarchy and the general membership.
