S5E9 - The Past Informs the Present: Addressing DU’s Colonial Roots and the Pioneer Moniker

May 2, 2022

The Legacy Series explores the lived experiences and impact of student leaders at The University of Denver (DU). This series has three goals:

-Center decolonization and inform the DU community of DU’s colonial roots and perpetuation of racism, hate, and discrimination
-Memorialize the resilience and brilliance of student leaders and their allies, offering a behind-the-scenes of their labor
-Alert the DU community to the harms that are continually inflicted upon student leaders at the University of Denver

At a foundational level, a large portion of the activism at DU has sought to force DU to acknowledge and confront its colonial roots and perpetuation of colonialism and racism. Many who join the DU community are unfamiliar with the history of The Sand Creek Massacre as well as the founder of DU, John Evans', culpability for the massacre. This history is imperative to understand the continued demand to remove the pioneer nickname at the University of Denver.

S5E7 - ”If You Want the History of a White Man, You Go to the Library”: A Conversation on Archives at the University of Denver

February 22, 2022

Summary: Host Caris Fox and guests Denisse Solis, Lauren Turner, and Katherine Crowe of Anderson Academic Commons at the University of Denver discuss the power of archives as sites of racial confrontation and reconciliation. Libraries are modern and historical examples of institutional racism as the stories of white, cis-gendered, non-disabled, and heterosexual men are systematically prioritized, resulting in the exclusion of works by Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC). The Anderson Academic Commons library at the University of Denver is no different. Solis, Turner, and Crowe center inclusion, ethics, care, and equity in their archival practices to capture the authentic stories of BIPOC students and their activism at DU while fighting for institutional change.
