Is Brother Brigham our black eye?

I'll post some real thoughts tomorrow or Friday, but here's an article on the new Church history library
I mentioned to Mike the other day when discussing Church history that Brigham Young is the black eye of the Church in some ways in terms of the appeal of our history to others. I'm not sure how much I believe this, but I think it's at least a little true.
Which brings me to the open question that I wanted to ask our discussants/loyal fan club: what do you think about the way in which the Church handles its history? Are we open enough? Do we whitewash things? If so, is our whitewashing legitimate (in the sense that it isn't really our job to provide reasons not to join the Church)?
