I have been lightly bombarded with kind suggestions to provide other sources on the topic. Here are a few:From Armand Mauss:
- Dispelling the curse of Cain: or, How to Explain the Old Priesthood Ban
Without Looking Ridiculous
- Neither White Nor Black
- Newell Bringhurst’s Saints, Slaves, and Blacks
- All Abraham’s Children: Changing Mormon Conceptions of Race and Lineage (University of Illinois Press).
Thanks to all for the feedback! I look forward to this.
