Black, White, and Mormon: A Confere...

Tuesday, September 8 – Thursday, October 29, 2015

These illustrations from political cartoons from the late 19th and early 20th centuries highlight two themes: polygamy as the racial corruption of the white family, and polygamy as slavery. Outsiders projected their own fears of race mixing onto the Mormons. In their minds, polygamy was not merely destroying the traditional family, it was destroying the white race. The final  photograph, “Sambo’s Minstrel Show” reflects how successfully Mormons had claimed whiteness for themselves by the 1950s. They could put on blackface and blend into the racial mainstream. These images illustrate W. Paul Reeve’s Religion of a Different Color: Race and the Mormon Struggle for Whiteness (Oxford University Press, 2015) Campus LocationsMarriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)

A Conversation with Michael Lewis— 2015 Sam Rich Lecture Series

    Thursday, September 24, 2015
    8:00pm 9:00pm
    Abravanel Hall

The University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics is thrilled to present the 2015 Sam Rich Lecture, "A Conversation with Michael Lewis" in conjunction with the David Eccles School of Business.

Lewis' acclaimed New York Times bestsellers include Moneyball, The Blind Side, Flash Boys, Boomerang, and Liar's Poker—to name a few. His book on the financial meltdown, The Big Short is currently being made into a widely-anticipated film starring Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Steve Carell.

After graduating from Princeton and the London School of Economics, Lewis worked at the bond desk at Salomon Brothers. His bold exposé on the industry shook the nation and resulted in a number-one bestseller "Liar's Poker." He left the financial world to become a journalist and frequently contributes to the New Republic, New York Times Magazine, Slate, Vanity Fair, and Bloomberg.

The event will take place at Abravanel Hall the evening of September 24 and promises to sell out well in advance. Tickets are available for purchase from ArtTix. Ticket URLwww.hinckley.utah.edu…
