There’s been a lot of buzz about the upcoming Museum of Boulder’s exhibit, Proclaiming Colorado’s Black History.
Colorado is perennially perceived as a mostly-white state. Proclaiming Colorado’s Black History unveils the stories of Black folks who made Colorado their home. On this month’s episode of Black Talk, KGNU’s Michele Simpson talks with Minister Glenda Strong Robinson and “The Soul Food Scholar,” Adrian Miller about what went into unearthing the stories that inspired and are shared in Proclaiming Colorado’s Black History Project.
Robinson and Miller say they hope the exhibit, which opens on Sept. 29, 2023, will generate conversation, and memories, and drive home the point that the Black Experience is embedded in everything we consider American history.
