Nauvoo casts Mormons' plight in a different light:

Some day perhaps, an alderman from some small Mississippi River town will go to dinner with an old friend from Chicago who will regale him with stories about the time in history when the city elected its first African-American mayor, causing white racist aldermen to rebel and take control of the City Council so as to limit his powers.

-- Glad to see someone brought up this point of view. He also points out how it was a bit of surprise to people who live down there.
