    This is part two of an interview with historian Paul Reeve, author of the new book Religion of a Different Color: Race and the Mormon Struggle for Whiteness, and Ardis Parshall, independent historian and author of the Keep-a-Pitchin-In Mormon history blog.

    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.
