No More the Canaanite

Perspectives of an African American Mormon on Race and the Priesthood


This book effectively dissects, exposes, explains and corrects most if not all of the misconceptions, speculations, misinterpreted scriptures, myths and shrouding that made the ban on Negroes receiving the priesthood scripturally justified, spiritually acceptable and socially tolerable, without question, for so long. This book is not the official answer or explanation of why the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1852 deemed it necessary to ban Negroes from the priesthood. It is also not intended, in any way, to criticize the church or the need for the ban as it is outlined in “Race and the Priesthood”. In fact, the bottom line conclusion of this book is that the ban on Negroes receiving the priesthood in 1852 had to be put in place to make it possible for the newly restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to survive and thrive in the racially divided environment that existed in America at that time.
