Thank you for your post! My husband and I were just listening to the weekly Mormon Tabernacle Choir's broadcast which included "Grand Night for Singing." We didn't recognize the arranger and after a quick google search, we found your post. Thank you for sharing your testimony of the Savior and of the potential we each have as sons and daughters of God. When we hear those well-loved songs, we'll remember the taped and re-taped scores.

"Church leaders, including Spencer Kimball (the church president who ended the priesthood restriction against those of African descent in 1978) and Gordon Hinckley (the best known Mormon church president in the 20th century), have publicly denounced entrenched racism among certain demographic groups within the church body. Unfortunately, their efforts have not been successful enough to eliminate intermittent espousal of the kinds of scabrous folklore apparently related by this BYU professor. These narratives are deeply cruel, un-Christian, and contrary to the teachings of modern LDS church leaders. It is well past time for those Mormons who still hold them to abandon them forever, with sincere apologies for treasuring racial bigotry for so long."
