Fall 2022 - A Case for Preserving Historic Murals

What do you notice when you see a mural? Lucha Martínez de Luna will make you think deeply about that question thanks to “Shroud, Destruction, and Neglect,” an article that makes the case for preserving Chicano/a/x murals. Jonthan Rees’s essay examines how it is difficult—a century later—to establish exactly how many people died in the 1921 Pueblo Flood and why the disaster’s impact is still felt today. And there is so much more, from recollections of a Dust Bowl childhood on the Eastern Plains to intrepid journalism from The Denver Post’s Polly Pry to expose abuse at the Fort Lewis Indian School in 1903.
