As part of the 3 percent of Mormons who are African-American, Tamu Smith and Zandra Vranes view their LDS identity through a slightly different cultural lens. The two self-proclaimed Sistas in Zion have navigated their faith with humor and openness in a successful podcast and now a book describes their journey as friends and believers.
On Monday at 12:15 p.m., Smith and Vranes join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about their new book, "Diary of Two Mad Black Mormons," and about diversity within Mormon culture.
