Synopsis

Nobody Knows: The Untold Story of Black Mormons
Award-winning authors Margaret Young and Darius Gray collaborate with filmmaker Danor Gerald to offer an informative glimpse into the world of African-American Latter Day Saints. Despite deceptive public perception that Mormonism is a completely white-bred faith, the LDS Church has had a strong African American presence from its earliest days. Among the Mormon pioneers were three "colored servants" who were baptized as Mormons, and whose legacy spanned several generations within the church. In additional to exploring that little-known legacy, the filmmakers also explore issues that arose within the church during the tumultuous Civil Rights Movement - during which time African-American's were forbidden from entering the priesthood. Later, when the ban was lifted, the modern Black Mormon pioneers faced an entirely new set of challenges. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
