Denver’s East Asian Heritage

Oct 21, 2018


Join Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel as he continues our journey through the rich tapestry of the city’s immigrant past by looking at those who joined us from the other side of the Pacific. We’ll explore our Asian heritage, from the lost Chinatown—known in the day as Hop Alley—to the numerous Vietnamese restaurants along South Federal Boulevard. Important individuals such as Minoru Yasui and Ralph Carr, whose statues decorate Sakura Square, have shown us better ways when racial hysteria blinded us to our failings. Let’s unravel the storied skein of the people of East Asia in Denver.

Includes bus transportation, a light lunch, guides and interpretation
