Mormons, Blacks and the Priesthood

In June 1978, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) extended its lay priesthood to men of all races. Recently, this video was produced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this historical event.

Dave thanks for the link. I left you a comment on my blog. "DUH, I'm slow today"
I actually was able to help in the planning of the Anniversary Program on temple square as the Genesis Group Program Director.

I've also got links to a couple of Radio spots that there aired as well if you're interested in hearing them, let me know. My sister and I both were part of those interviews.
