The Hispanic Experience in Colorado (CO)

Over the course of two workshops in February and June, the TPS Western Region, in collaboration with  The Center for Colorado & the West at Auraria Library, History Colorado, and the Denver Public Library, offered a unique professional development opportunity that focused on Colorado's rich Hispanic history. The workshops focused on the following topics:

Hispanic Politics in Colorado
Hispanic Labor in Colorado
Hispanic Industry in Colorado
Hispanic Civil Rights in Colorado
Hispanic Culture and Tradition in Colorado

Using resources from the Library of Congress, as well as from our collaborators, participants gained a better perspective on Hispanic culture in Colorado, along with gleaning new ideas for the classroom. Below are four videos produced in conjunction with the workshop by students in the Technical Communications & Media Production Department at Metro State and directed by Professor Bob Amend, featuring unique Hispanic perspectives.
