Biographical History

Susan Easton Black (1944- ) is a retired professor of Mormon Church history at Brigham Young Univeristy and a prolific writer in Utah.

Susan Easton Black was born in 1944 in Long Beach, California. She attended Brigham Young University where she earned degrees in political science and history. Black married and had three sons, but was divored six years later. To provide for her family, she went back to school and earned a Master's degree in counseling from San Bernardio. After graduating, Black began teaching at San Bernardino College.

Black decided to continue her education and went on to obtain her Ed.D. in educational psychology with a minor in Church history from Brigham Young Univeristy. Upon completing her degree, Black was hired to teach in the College of Family Living in 1978; however, this only lasted for four years before she was asked to move into the BYU religion department. While at BYU, Black has been the associate dean of General Education and Honors and the director of Church history in the Religious Studies Center. In 2000, she recieved the Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award. Black's career has extended outside of the classroom because she has written and edited more than 100 books on religious subjects.
