The Office of Civic Engagement and African Studies invites you to spend an hour learning from the wisdom and experience of Darius Gray, a prominent African-American Latter-day Saint speaker and writer among many other things.
Darius Gray joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the mid-1960s and attended Brigham Young University for a year before transferring. He served as President of the Genesis Group (an LDS African American organization) and was the director of the Freedmens Bank Record project for the Church’s Family History Department.
President Gray is a frequent speaker on African-American genealogy, Blacks in the Bible, and Blacks in the LDS Church and has made presentations throughout the United States. Along with Margaret Blair Young, he coauthored the trilogy Standing on the Promises, a poignant portrait of Black LDS pioneers.
