Exploring and preserving Colorado’s Chicano history

Listen Now

In the 1960s and 1970s, Colorado’s Chicano rights movement was focused on lifting up voices of the oppressed and marginalized. For many — El Movimiento — the movement has been going on since 1848 and the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. But for others, much of Chicano history is unknown — from the whitewashing of murals around Denver, to unsolved car bombings in 1970s Boulder. This week on Real Talk, we explore the Chicano movement’s origins and its future — through its art and culture.
