"In Russell Stevenson's For the Cause of Righteousness he extends the story of Mormonism's long-standing priesthood ban to the broader history of the Church's interaction with blacks. In so doing he introduces both relevant atmospherics and important new context. These should inform all future discussions of this surprisingly enduring subject." - Lester E. Bush, author of "Mormonism's Negro Doctrine: An Historical Overview"
