Fall 2018

The Fall issue commemorates the lifting of the priesthood ban and in true Dialogue style, scholars discuss and dissect it’s implications. Lester Bush starts the issues by “Looking Back, Looking Forward” while Joanna Brooks examines “Possessive Investment in Rightness.” Robert Greenwell looks at “One Devout Mormon Family’s Struggle With Racism.” Matthew Harris includes a groundbreaking study on “Mormons and Lineage: The Complicated History of Blacks and Patriarchal Blessings, 1830-2018.” And Dialoguing around the Roundtable is the voices of Alice Faulkner Burch, Janan Graham-Russell, Gail Turley Houston, Melodie Jackson and Cameron McCoy. And Darron Smith discusses “Negotiating Black Self-Hate Within the LDS Church.” And so much more!
