After months of trudging across the plains to escape injustice, facing famine and death along the way, the Mormon pioneers gazed across the valley as Brigham Young famously declared, “This is the place.” But is it the place for everyone? The theme of this year’s Pioneer Day is “Pushing Toward Our Future,” but as we so often see with regards to civil rights in this country, it seems as though history is re...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
