Salt Lake City, UT
Sunstone Education Foundation
An interview with Lester Bush concerning the Mormon Negro doctrine. Bush says that historical investigation is important because, 'unless you look into the historical context of their [the leaders'] remarks and at the sequence of opinions held by succeeding presidents, you are hard-pressed to know whether a particular church leader's opinion at a given time is something to take very seriously or just a little seriously.' His study of the Negro doctrine followed this framework.
