Short of any definitive studies on this phenomenon, one can only fathom a reasonable explanation based on my two-hour interaction with Corbitt at the church's striking edifice at Lincoln Centre in New York City.
...
Corbitt is prudent, deliberate before he ventures an explanation. "You know evangelising can lead to intra-Christian rivalry," he pondered. Or maybe other Christians do not buy into the revelation of the Book of Mormon and its revered status in the movement's theology.
And there is the question of polygamy that has bedevilled the image of the church, although it is a practice long effaced from its edicts.
Corbitt laboured to convey that message, conceding the existence of "marginal, splinter" groups that still uphold that archaic creed.
"Polygamy ended as early as 1890," he remarked, noting that "anyone still indulging in the practice is outside the fold of the Latter Day Saints ... in other words, they are not Mormons."
Corbitt shared his own epiphany - his conversion.
...
Corbitt went a step further: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the most unifying organisation in the world."
...
Corbitt called it "an integral part and essence of the faith."
He chided modern society's marginalisation of the elderly.
Corbitt has since sought his roots, reaching as far back as 1830. "Regrettably," he stated, "Black Americans experience the 'brick wall' phenomenon, meaning that they cannot trace their ancestry before the Civil War when we were nothing but chattel."
DEFINING APPEAL
Still, the credence given to the elders and the ancestors - strong elements in black tradition may be the Mormon's defining appeal.
Corbitt cited 1 Corinthians 15:29 that speaks of "baptism for the dead".

Moreover, if you watch this interview I taped just a few weeks ago with Ahmad Corbitt, Public Affairs Director (NYC) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you'll see that he explains that members of the LDS Church believe that those who lived before us have a choice about the baptism as well.
