Colorado Heritage Magazine - Fall 2019

In this issue: Coloradans have long—in fact always—made posters to share what they care about and inspire others. See signs of the times as featured in the new exhibit What's Your Story? Also, author David N. Shorr recounts a tale of love and loss in the Wild West along the Durango-area trail of Del Lockard and Bronco Lou, where mysteries remain and injustice abounds. And, as State Historian William Wei recounts, most Coloradans oppose discrimination based on sexual orientation, but getting to this point has been complicated. Read these stories and more in the latest issue of Colorado Heritage.
