This week we invite Dr. Mica McGriggs to help us teach Lauren about the roots of white supremacy in Mormon history and culture — specifically, the ban on ordaining Black men to the Mormon priesthood, or allowing Black Mormons into their temples.

Pull up a chair and join us as we explore: - The doctrine and scriptural “basis” for the ban - Whether it started with Joseph Smith or Brigham Young - Did Mormons believe in slavery?

We also invite you to investigate further on your own as you await the release of part 2 next week.
