“Racism and Other Challenges” – Nation’s Shameful History of Black Slavery

President Dallin H. Oaks

27 October of 2020 BYU Devotional Address

“I speak of the problem of racism. You will recall President Russell M. Nelson’s great teachings in general conference on this subject and perhaps my own plea that Latter-day Saints unite to “root out racism.” To do that, we must have clear thinking about how current events should be analyzed and acted upon in view of this nation’s shameful history of Black slavery.”
