BLACK MORMON SINGLES
Welcome to Black Mormon Singles!
There's good news and bad news!
Good news....there are 20,000 black Mormons in the U.S. and Canada.
Bad news....they are scattered about quite widely.
If you are black and LDS, you are probably one of few black Members in your Stake (except for a few places). It makes it difficult to find an date others of your own race and culture.
*There is nothing in the Church against interracial dating or marriage. The Church has thousands of active interracial couples. However, if you want to date other Black Mormons, then keep reading.
The best way to find other active single black Members to date is....
1) To advertise in LDS singles websites.
2) To move to where there are concentrations of Black Latter-day Saints.
3) Move to Ghana for three weeks and find a mate there.
Those are your choices if you wish to date single black Members.

Summary and Conclusion
*Inter-racial marriages are allowed in the LDS Church, and there are many of them.
*95% of white Mormons are NOT racist, and are totally accepting of blacks and inter-racial couples in the Church.
*White Mormon culture is "different" from African-American culture, so if you are not comfortable in white culture, you probably won't be comfortable attending a predominantly white Mormon Ward (congregation).
*Mormon leaders do not allow "black only" Wards (congregations) at this time, but some Wards are predominantly black (listed below).
*There are about 20,000 black Mormons in the United States, but most are inactive (do not attend Church). There are mostly Black Mormon Wards (congregations) in Detroit, Atlanta, Harlem (New York City), Oakland California, Inglewood California (just East of Los Angeles International Airport), and Washington D.C. Other than these areas, the number of active Black Mormons is very small, perhaps 1 in every 100 Mormons.
*There are about 300 to 500 active Black Mormons who belong to the Genesis Group in the greater Salt Lake City area. They meet one evening per month in the Fort Union section of Midvale, Utah. They have picnics, dances, and other social activities as well as service activities.
*There are about 100 to 200 single Black Mormons who attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. All belong to the Black Student Union, and they have various activities. Just about all are under 30, and just about all are single. If you move to Salt Lake or Utah County, contact them and see if you can attend their functions, even if you don't go to BYU.
*There are about 400,000 black Mormons in Africa, and that number is growing tremendously every year.
*If you decide to move to the greater Salt Lake City area, make sure to contact the Genesis Group once you get there. The Genesis Group website is in the links below.
*About 50% of white Mormon women are "open" to marrying a black man. About 15% of white Mormon men are "open" to marrying a black woman. Much depends on your looks, personality, and (for the women) how much "security" you can provide for them. DO NOT ASSUME they are "racist" because they reject you! The vast great majority of white Mormons under the age of 70 are not racist in any way. White Mormons reject other white Mormons for love all the time. Don't take it too personally.
*The Genesis Group has an excellent singles program. If you move to the Salt Lake or Provo/Orem areas, make sure to contact them.
*If you want to know something about Black Mormon history, then click on the link below "The Black Mormon Homepage".
