We Cordially Invite You To a Screening of:
“Nobody Knows: The Untold Story of Black Mormons”
“Few people, Mormon and non-Mormon, are aware that there has been an African American presence in the LDS Church from its earliest days, that the vanguard company of Mormon pioneers included three “colored servants” whose descendants remained active Mormons for several generations. This documentary talks about that little-known legacy, and confronts the hard issues, which surfaced in the most turbulent years of the Civil Rights Movement, when the Church’s restriction of its priesthood from those of African descent drew national attention It discusses how that restriction was lifted and what the lives and challenges of the modern Black Mormon pioneers are. Besides never-released footage shot in 1968 and many rare archival photographs, the documentary includes interviews with renowned scholars, historians, and Black Mormons.” The film is 73 minutes in duration and included on the DVD is over 100 minutes of special features.
