This is very well summarized in Steve Selvin's book:
Statistical Analysis of Epidemiological Data, p.
238-240. Essentially, the Maentel Haenszel chi square
is equivalent to a likelihood ratio test of the model
with the dummy variables compared to the model without
the dummy variables (without any interaction terms).
The summary odds ratio for promotions is equivalent to
the exponentiated coefficient for promitions in the
model with the dummy variables for race (again with no
interaction terms). All of this can be easily done in
Stata, see commands: lrtest, xi, and logit/logistic.

Hope this helps, Tim
