Interview with Daniel Becerra

A powerful message from Dr. Daniel Becerra, assistant professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University. In this interview with the Book of Mormon Art Catalog, he discusses the importance of diversity in religious art, the value in “seeing the image of God in people who are different from us,” and his work on BYU’s Committee for Belonging to diversify art on campus.
