This isn’t quite MormonLeaks, but I think it’s quite a scoop! It’s time to conclude #BlackHistoryMonth, and here’s my latest conversation with Dr. Paul Reeve! In recent years the LDS Church has published a series of essays with a goal of giving Latter-day Saints good information regarding many aspects of LDS History. These essays are well footnoted, and seem to have been written by historians. I asked Paul if he helped craft the essay and he said that he played a major role in crafting the essay. Please listen to him describe his role. I think this is quite a scoop!
I also asked Paul to talk about race issues in our day, including the ban on children of gay parents and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing at President Trump’s recent inauguration. He was very candid in his opinions and I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to this interview! Click here to listen. (You can also subscribe for free on iTunes.)

Are you surprised (1) that he admitted it? (2) that he wrote it?
