NOBODY KNOWS The Untold Story of Black Mormons
Directors: Margaret Young, Darius Gray 2008
Run time: 76 min. | U S A
Plays with Jehovah's Witness | ALAIN KRAMER 2007


Perhaps the most interesting feature of this documentary is an unprecedented report by Pastor Cecil 'Chip' Murray of an apology issued to him personally by the Mormon Church president, Gordon B. Hinckley, for the LDS role in the national travesty of racism. Besides this account (which comes late in the documentary), "Nobody Knows: The Untold Story of Black Mormons" includes interviews with Martin Luther King III, footage of Black Mormon Gladys Knight, and interviews with various Black Mormons of many backgrounds, including three converts filmed initially in 1968 and then again in 2007. These three men talk about their journey in the LDS religion; how it felt to join a church which restricted its most important privileges from them and their families, how it felt when the restrictions were lifted, and how it feels today, when questions still circulate within Mormon Sunday School classes about God's view of Blacks. Are Blacks cursed, as Mormon leaders once taught? Were Blacks less valiant than whites in a pre-mortal life (also a prominent teaching of the 19th and 20th centuries which has yet to be repudiated). More recent Black converts are also interviewed, and report a spectrum of experiences within the LDS fold--everything from being called a 'Nigger' in a Mormon temple to feeling completely embraced into the faith, and even being called into leadership positions.
