The Sistas in Zion | Hilarity Never Faileth

Last year, I had the chance to sit down and interview Tamu Smith and Zandra Vranes, creators of the website Sistas in Zion, and authors of the book Diary of Two Mad Black Mormons.

In this five minute video, the Sistas share their beliefs, talk about what kind of music Elder Holland listens to, and why they would “dress up for Jesus.” I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much during an interview (listen closely and you can actually hear me a couple of times). Seriously, my sides were hurting!

  • Awesome. Thanks for pointing out the “sad” look. Maybe we just get too serious? Or just try to stop the feeling instead of embracing it? I’m not sure about anyone else, just pondering it myself. I will definitely smile from now on, because there is so much to be joyous about and we need a little bit of that to shine through so others can see that we DO feel joy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
