A plaque at the site of an anti-Chinese riot in 1880 will be removed from downtown Denver on Monday, August 8, 2022. It comes four months after the city issued a formal apology for the marker, which whitewashes the history. A Chinese man was lynched during the riot, and Chinatown, in what's now LoDo, was destroyed.
A group called "Colorado Asian-Pacific United" will be on hand for the plaque's removal. Shauna Medeiros-Tuilaepa and Joie Ha co-chair the board. They spoke with Ryan Warner last year. The plaque will be given to History Colorado for preservation in its museum.
