The Utah Pioneer Day parade has a float by "Latter-day Saints for Cultural Awareness," who portray the African-American pioneers Elijah Abel (ordained elder and Seventy with Joseph Smith's approval, denied endowment by Brigham Young), Green Flake (Utah pioneer slave), and Jane Elizabeth Manning (sealed as eternal "Servitor" to Smith).
