Racial Diversity in the LDS Church

An interesting African-American Mormon
The majority of Mormons worldwide (55%) are not Caucasian. See my Diversity Slide Show for more. ()

There are estimated to be between 350,000 and 500,000 Mormons with African heritage, though exact numbers are unknown because the Church does not keep track of the race of its members. About 150,000 live in Africa, 10,000 (or more) in Brazil, 20,000 in the Caribbean, and perhaps as many as 50,000 in the U.S. My Slide Show shows some of these afro-Brazilian saints, among whom my wife is included.
