Redeeming a People

The Critical Role of Historical Examination in Moving Cultural and Moral Trajectories

by Darius Gray

In volume 24 of the Arrington Lecture Series, Darius Gray, who joined the LDS Church in 1964, marks the history of the years that preceded the leadership of the LDS Church’s revelation allowing all worthy male members, regardless of race, to receive the priesthood. Gray has spoken extensively during the anniversary year about his experiences as a member of the church, both before and after that historic announcement in 1978.
 
The Arrington Lecture series, established by one of the twentieth-century West's most distinguished historians, Leonard Arrington, has become a leading forum for prominent historians to address topics related to Mormon history. Utah State University hosts the Leonard J. Arrington Mormon History Lecture Series through the Merrill-Cazier Library Special Collections and Archives department.

Darius Gray, a lauded Mormon historian, activist, and writer, joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1964, served as a counselor in the Genesis Group beginning in 1971, and was president of the support group for black Latter-day Saints from 1997 to 2003.
