Religion of a Different Color

Race and the Mormon Struggle for Whiteness

W. Paul Reeve

  • The most thorough telling to date of Mormonism's tortured relationship with blackness, which has been the topic of recent controversy within the LDS Church.
  • Chronicles the way in which Mormons were described as physically different and the argument that polygamy was giving rise to a new race, degraded and deformed.
  • Explores accusations of Mormons dressed as Indians at the Mountain Meadows Massacre and substantiates that those claims predated the massacre by at least seven years.
