Colorado has plenty of adventurers. But back in the 1920s there was one group that decided to have an adventure half way around the world. The Colorado African Expedition completed a 14-thousand mile journey to Africa and they filmed the entire trip. That footage, including a scene from Denver’s Brown Palace Hotel got turned into a movie called “Africa Speaks." It was largely forgotten until it was recently discovered hidden in the vault at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Howie Movshovitz - our film critic - helped find it.
You can watch a 50 minute version of the 1930 classic Africa Speaks here.
