What are statues for? Why do we name buildings after certain people? And what do they say about what – and who – we value? As Black Lives Matter protesters topple racially problematic statues around the world, Mormon scholar Joanna Brooks asks members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to take a closer, more critical, look at the building names and statues on the campus of Brigham Young University and around Utah.
