I firmly believe that the LDS Church will one day be a place where all are truly alike unto God and there is equality in faith. In working towards the realization of those goals, I have spent a great deal of time studying Church history.
I think it is vitally important that we, as women of color, know as much as we can about the history of the Church with respect to race and skin color and not just the sanitized accounts that appear in Church publications. So I invite you to listen to me recount the full details of the quest of Sister Jane Elizabeth Manning James, a sister of African descent, to receive her Temple ordinances. I then invite you to consider joining in the quest for equality in faith.
