Videos for Black, White, and Mormon Conference (October 2015)

By October 27, 2015

The Tanner Humanities Center has made the videos for the Black, White, and Mormon Conference available. The conference, held at the University of Utah on October 8-9, 2015, was an incredible experience for me as a participant. I would love to see more opportunities, funding, and venues dedicated to this type of public engagement.

A Commemoration for Those Who Have Died

Race and the Inner City

  2. I watched most of it while at work today (multitasking). It was outstanding. (And I’m glad someone was able to fix the sound issues with the first version of the Bush video I tried to watch.)

  3. Thanks Teresa, It was lots of fun to film this wedding, and pttrey exciting to film at a temple outside of Utah, It gave me a chance to come up with some new ideas. I really love what I do, and I certainly don’t plan on doing anything else for a very, very, long time. I get to be a part of the happiest day of peoples lives. What job could be better?
