“I remember being in a Sacrament meeting, pre-1978, and the sacrament was being passed and there was special care taken by this person that not only did I not officiate, but I didn’t touch the sacrament tray. They made sure that I could take the sacrament, but that I did not touch the tray and it was passed around me. That was awfully hard, considering that often those who were officiating were young men in their early teens, and they had that priesthood. I valued that priesthood, but it wasn’t available,” – Darius Gray, President of The Genesis Group, an LDS organization for black Mormons. He remains active in the LDS Church and sees no more racism in it than in any other part of society.
