Abstract: The conventional wisdom is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is and always has been almost entirely white. However, both African Americans and Native Americans have formed a part of the church since its founding in the nineteenth century. This talk explores some of the ways in which race and religious experience shaped one another for some of these early non-white Mormons.
