Black Mormons and the Priesthood (with Bill McKeever)

UTR #56


In 1978,  the living Mormon prophet received a revelation that Blacks can now hold the priesthood. We recently interviewed James the Mormon, an LDS rapper whose album went #1 on iTunes, and asked him about this. We played Bill McKeever (Mormonism Research Ministry) clips from the interview and got Bill’s response, especially on the Priesthood and black Mormons.

Special Guest: Bill McKeever, author of Mormonism 101

Featured Song:  New Soul – Jamesthemormon

Meet a Mormon MC (with James the Mormon)

UTR #50


James the Mormon is a skilled Mormon MC. He heard when we played his hip hop track on Joseph Smith’s First Vision account. James also heard our show when we discussed LDS rap and Mormon minorities – and he wanted to respond. This show is the result: incredibly intriguing, ultra enlightening and maximally interesting! The discussion was so enrapturing we went way over time. Way. Over. But. So. Worth. It.

Special Guest: James the Mormon (read his blog about his “Restoration” track) 

Featured Song: Dreamin’  Jamesthemormon
