Beyond Five Points: Northeast Denver and Park Hill by Bus
Saturday, February 23, 2019 | 9:00AM — 3:00PM
As Denver’s real estate “color line” began to move, so did African Americans. The early 1950s brought a flood of military personnel and all the sub service personnel and their families. Communities moved east past Downing Street, then to Franklin, and then to York. Once the line moved past Colorado Boulevard, the black migration into Park Hill exploded. Up through the 1980s it’s said that 90 to 95 percent of all African Americans who lived between Downing, Monaco Parkway, 35th Avenue and 26th Avenue were college-educated and working in the military, social service, education or the medical industry. Join us for Black History Month as we explore the rich cultural history of African American migration and its impact on the neighborhoods of Denver! Includes bus transportation, admission and guides.
