Several curious tidbits that happened on this day in Mormon History
55 years ago today - Jan 23, 1964
Apostle Delbert L. Stapley writes to Michigan governor George Romney with concern over Romney's "liberal" views on civil rights. Stapley agrues against the 1964 Civil Rights bill (which later passed) stating that "the Negro" is not entitled to "full social benefits nor inter-marriage privileges with the Whites, nor should the Whites be forced to accept them into restricted White areas." Stapley states that his position is due to the statements of Joseph Smith on the subject.
