The Foyer: Conversations about mormon history and culture

Conversations about mormon history and culture

Many of the most important conversations in a Latter-day Saint ward happen not in the chapel or a classroom but in the meetinghouse foyer. In each episode of “The Foyer,” one or more distinguished guests will join Dr. Patrick Mason for a thoughtful but informal conversation about Mormon history and culture. Episodes will be video cast live with audience Q&A. These sessions are also available via spotify following the event.

The Ongoing Quest for Racial Equality

May 25, 2021, marks the one-year anniversary since the murder of George Floyd, which set off a nationwide wave of protests over policing and continuing racial inequalities in America. In addition to the broader American context, the LDS Church is in the midst of an ongoing reckoning with its own past of racial exclusion. In this episode guests LaShawn Williams, Mauli Bonner, and Paul Reeve will talk about the past, present, and future of race in America and Mormonism, focusing especially on the African American experience.
