Blacks in the Mormon Church
On February 26, 2005 I saw an article on my Google-alert that I just couldn’t ignore. It said; ‘Latter-day Saints face race issue’. This subject has always fascinated me so I clicked on the article to find out that a man by the name of Darron Smith, has written a book entitled; ‘Black and Mormon’.

Ezra Taft Benson
Journal of Discourses 6:181; “The next man who came on to the carpet wanted to know how many wives brother Brigham had. I replied, “I have not come here to lay before this people the domestic affairs of my Governor. It is a question I never asked him myself, for I never took the pains to inquire anything about it. But still, as I am a Yankee, I will guess, if that will do you any good. Now,” said I, “I will be honest with you, for your pastor has given me the freedom of speech; and if I may judge for appearances, I should presume he has some fifty or sixty.””

Anniversary of the killing of Joseph Smith
On June 27, 1844 a group of men known as the Carthage Greys headed to the holding cell of Joseph and Hyrum Smith, John Taylor and Willard Richards. When they got there a gun battle would ensue, leaving Joseph and Hyrum Smith dead as well as two others from the Carthage Greys. Joseph Smith was the reason the two other men were killed. History of the Church 6:617-621.
