A video of an African American woman detailing her experiences of racism within the Mormon church has begun to circulate online.

The woman, introduced as Channel Achenbach was on the Mormon Stories Podcast in November last year, though the video was uploaded in 2023.

In the video, she explained how she was told she was not permitted to marry a white man as her “seed was cursed”. She was also told that she must only marry a Black man to prevent her children from being “cursed”

The episode was uploaded on January 2 to the Mormon Stories Podcast YouTube page but snippets of her testimony have begun to circulate on other social media platforms such as TikTok.

Speaking to the host John Dehlin, Achenbach explained conversations and teachings she received from leaders of the Mormon Church.

She said: “[The leaders] said ‘You know what, we think it is best you get married.

“‘You are older, you have served the mission, you are a great candidate for marriage but you need to find a Black man.
