Each Friday, The Salt Lake Tribune presents historic images in a special series called A Look Back. To celebrate Black History month, this week's installment features photos of Utah's early black pioneers and settlers. Among Utah's early black residents were farmers, business owners, soldiers and the first African American police detective in the United States.
