    This episode focuses on the origins of the LDS Church’s restriction on priesthood ordination and temple attendance against black church members. Ardis Parshall joins us to talk about the value of lesser-known Latter-day Saints and their stories. Both historians reflect on how they negotiate difficult issues posed by church history in the context of their own religious faith.

    A review of Religion of a Different Color is scheduled to appear in the next issue of the Mormon Studies Review. See part one of this episode here.

  2. Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship

    Mormonism and Race in the Nineteenth Century, with Paul Reeve and Ardis Parshall (part 1) [ 1:00:44 | 57.42 MB ] Play Now | Play in Popup | Download

    One of the most anticipated reviews in the upcoming Mormon Studies Review focuses on a landmark book called Religion of a Different Color: Race and the Mormon Struggle for Whiteness by W. Paul Reeve. In this special two-part episode, historians Reeve and Ardis E. Parshall talk about the book and answer questions about the historian’s craft more broadly.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints affirms the universal sisterhood and brotherhood of humanity. A recent Gospel Topics essay at lds.org explains that “Latter-day Saint scripture and teachings affirm that God loves all of His children and makes salvation available to all. God created the many diverse races and ethnicities and esteems them all equally.” The essay also traces the Church’s complicated history of perspectives on race, including the controversial restriction of priesthood and temple participation by black members of the Church which was lifted in 1978.

    Part one

    LDS church history on this topic is complex and at times surprising. Part one of this interview focuses on Reeve’s research about the concept of race in the nineteenth century. His book tells the puzzling story about how Mormons had to “struggle” to be recognized as “white.” The struggle had dramatic consequences especially for black church members. How did Mormons perceive American Indians, “Oriental” people (to use nineteenth-century parlance). How did the question of slavery impact early Mormon views of race and how were Mormons themselves racialized by outsiders?

    Reeve organized his book around this striking political cartoon from a 1904 issue of Life, which we discuss throughout the interview:

    The Mormon diversity depicted in this political cartoon was not intended to be a favorable representation.

    Parshall will join us in part two which focuses directly on the topic of black members of the nineteenth-century LDS Church. Watch for it this Thursday.

  4. Roads & Kingdoms’ Matt Goulding On Moms, Tweets, and Bourdain [1/2]

    As you can probably tell, I love interviewing people for Special Sauce. That’s because we book guests who have compelling food-related stories to share with us. But Roads & Kingdoms co-founder and author Matt Goulding had so many interesting things to say about food and life that I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I probably enjoyed the time I spent gabbing with Matt more than any other interview I’ve done for the podcast. Here’s Matt on his dad: "My dad, I should say, as many men are, was a great griller and was great with eggs. It seems to be two things that men generally feel comfortable cooking, even in a relatively limited culinary household." And here he is how he views his debilitating Crohn’s Disease diagnosis: "The two ironies of my food life is, one, that I come from a family that didn’t really value food, and the other is that I ended up being deeply in love with this world of food but nevertheless have a digestive illness that presents all these interesting challenges." Matt is just as good about how he got into writing as he is about his personal life. His first editorial job was at Student Traveler Magazine, an experience he describes as definitive: "That was my entryway into actually being paid for writing, at ten cents a word, but it was a check, and it was a drug. Immediately there was this high of seeing your name in print, being able to tell your story. Anyone who’s deranged and narcissistic enough to become a writer knows what that high feels like, and I was hooked pretty quickly." He went on to become the food editor at Men’s Health magazine, where he finally got his fellow editors to understand where he was coming from: "Finally at an editorial meeting I think I said something like, "The kitchen is the new garage." Matt ended up co-writing 18 volumes of the Eat This, Not That series, which grew out of a column he wrote at Men’s Health and ended up selling millions of copies. Why were those books so successful? "It was a brilliant four words. The convergence of syllables was extraordinary," he says. What does he find so compelling about writing about food? "I can’t stop moving. So one thing I realized is it’s going to be a really lonely life unless I find a way to connect with people as quickly as possible. It’s always, every single instance, food, no matter where you are, was just an instant entry point into a culture, into someone’s home, into their lives. It happened over and over again, so to be able to share those stories in some way, it would be stupid not to." And, finally, here’s Matt’s description of how Roads & Kingdoms, the James Beard award-winning website he co-founded with Nathan Thornburgh, transformed from being something only their mothers would read to the must-read site for anyone who has an interest in the intersection between travel, culture, and food, all because of the power of a single tweet: "We just kept writing these 5,000-word narrative pieces about the most random convergence of culture and politics that we could find. But we woke up at one in the morning on this houseboat after a long night out at Noma, and it was clear looking at my phone, something was happening. The phone was literally pulsating or something. Open up the phone, and it turns out that Anthony Bourdain had just sent out a tweet. It was very simple, but it said, ‘These guys do consistently fine work.’ It was just a link to the Roads & Kingdoms home page, and that was it." If you want to find out how that tweet led to Bourdain being the one and only outside investor in Roads & Kingdoms you’re just going to have to listen to Part 1 of my extraordinary conversation with the equally extraordinary Matt Goulding.
