For over a century The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints prohibited the ordination of men who had Black African ancestry to offices in its priesthood. This priesthood ban was lifted in 1978 to the delight of most Church members, but puzzling questions and folklore surrounding the origin and reasons for the ban have lingered in Mormon popular culture.

Brother Martins does an exceptional job shedding new light on a sensitive Ladder-day Saint topic. If you're interested in the Blacks/priesthood debate, I'd recommend this book. Also, He has a wonderful testimony of the Church. Thanks, Brother Martins!
Blacks and the Mormon Priesthood (Setting the Record Straight) This book really helped me and given insight into the minds and hearts of Blacks in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I bought this book hoping to gain new perspective on the LDS Churches inner political conflict and debate leading up to the reversal of its historic policy denying Blacks the Priesthood. I was sorely disappointed. This book contains very few historical facts and it's purpose is not to convey facts ... rather, it's really just the personal testimony of a Black church member who lived through those times, expressing their feelings and reasons for standing steadfastly by the church throughout. Read this if you would like to gain emotional insights into how the policy affected Blacks on a personal level ... but it isn't helpful for obtaining a review of historical facts, such as details of Blacks being ordained in the early church by Joseph Smith, documents that might show how the policy was originally implemented and how those early Blacks were affected (was the priesthood taken away from them?), and insights into which church leaders supported the policy and which were against, and why...
