DENVER — The 1960s was a decade when many social movements took center stage--the Vietnam anti-war movement, Black Power, the Women’s Movement, and here in Colorado, the Chicano Movement. Denver was the urban center of the Chicano Movement. But, throughout Colorado, the embers of El Movimiento burned hot, igniting boycotts, demonstrations, and other events throughout the late 60s and early 70s.
