Abstract

Although it today considers itself a beacon of equal opportunity, Colorado's racial history is replete with racial injustice and discrimination, particularly in the field of higher education and fair housing. Archival research and field investigation discloses an unbroken line of terror, mob justice, Ku Klux Klan government, and outright exclusion of four major groups of color going back to territorial days, with effects continuing to this day.

Keywords: racial history, discrimination, education, higher education, University of Colorado, Ku Klux Klan, Colorado racial history
