Event Details

Working collaboratively to preserve Colorado’s rich and complex Black histories, sharing them broadly, and integrating them into Colorado education. The Museum of Boulder, in partnership with Adrian Miller, the Boulder County NAACP Chapter and the Boulder Public Library’s Maria Rogers Oral History Program, will develop activities to highlight the history of Black people in Colorado with our IMLS: Museums for America grant.

Over three years (and beyond), the Museum will employ a community-centered process and develop an exhibit and educational curricula to address the underrepresentation of Black histories in Colorado.

The program will collect original oral histories and research, consolidate research data and make it publicly available, and host a series of programs about race.

This project will give Coloradans a more inclusive understanding of the state’s history by illuminating the stories of Black Coloradans, help the local community examine attitudes about and acknowledge the experience of Black people in Colorado, and ultimately serve as a launching pad for community dialogue and a basis for community action.
