On this episode, we take a break from the historical timeline to talk with Madison Harris. She presented at the John Whitmer Historical Conference 2018 and I snagged her for a quick interview on her presentation. She discusses racism within the ranks of 20th-century Mormon leadership. The central focus surrounds Utah and the Church’s opposition to the national holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Mormon racism didn’t end with the 1978 priesthood ban being lifted.
