Denver Mayor Michael Hancock speaks before the removal of a plaque on a 20th Street wall across from Coors Field that mischaracterized a brutal 1880 assault by whites against Chinese immigrants living and working in Denver as a “Chinese Riot.” Monday, August 8, 2022. The move comes following a formal apology earlier this year.
