February is Black History Month, a perfect time to revisit these episodes of the Maxwell Institute Podcast.
In this episode, Julius H. Bailey talks about his book, Down in the Valley: An Introduction to African American History. It’s a general overview of the black experience of religion in the United States.

These episodes zoom in to Mormon ideas about race, and the place of African Americans in Mormon history.
Anthea Butler joins us to talk about her book, Women in the Church of God in Christ: Making A Sanctified World.
