Colorado history is made up of tales big and small, some well known and others untold. The 2012-13 lecture series dusts off familiar stories for new audiences and introduces recent research to shed light on the people, places, and experiences that define Colorado.
We'll find out how Colorado's landscape has changed over the past 130,000 years, as we learn about the excavations in Snowmass Village. We'll discover the importance of saving family papers with the amazing story of a fugitive slave and the white antislavery couple who helped her. We'll consider the experiences of American Indians in Colorado, meet Abraham Lincoln, hear about the Bracero Program, and learn about the Colorado National Monument. We'll end the series by welcoming back Dr. Patricia Limerick.
All lectures take place at 1 and 7 p.m. at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, Denver.
