Saturday morning conference session makes history
SALT LAKE CITY — During the Saturday morning session of the 192nd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sister Tracy Y. Browning became the first Black woman to ever speak at a general conference.
Sister Browing serves as the second counselor in the Primary general presidency and was appointed such during a general conference on April 2, 2022.
Following President Russell M. Nelson’s denouncement of abuse as a grievous sin and abomination, Sister Browing spoke.
During this morning’s session, Sister Browning began by talking about the guidance of Jesus Christ in daily life. In a release of Sister Browning’s transcript, she goes on to discuss teachings, tools, behaviors, practices, and more.
Sister Tracy Y. Browning’s background
Sister Browning was born in New Rochelle New York and lived in Jamaica until she was 11 years old. Then, she returned to live in New Jersey and New York. She was 15 years old when her mother saw a Latter-day Saint advertisement for a free copy of the Book of Mormon on television, says The Church News website.
As Browning would visit her mother she would observe her mother’s progression toward baptism. Then, Tracy began attending Latter-Day Saint Sunday worship services with her mother. Within a year of attendance, Tracy was baptized.
Tracy met her husband while working with the missionaries, through a mutual friend. Together, the two have two children.
