Denver is a beautiful city, the only one of its kind in the United States. It does not have the slums, and disintegration has not gone so far as many older industrial cities . . . she has everything, wealth, culture, public spirited citizens who have left splendid memorials to their love of Denver. There is climate, close proximity to the mountains, winter sports, in fact, everything to be desired.

-Minutes of the Denver Planning Commission,February 16, 1942 Denver Planning Commission Collection, Western History Collection, Denver Public Library

Sitting pretty at 5,280 feet in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains . . . Long a celebrated outdoor recreation mecca, Denver’s cultural attractions and easy urban lifestyle have taken center stage, with old brick industrial buildings sprouting stylish lofts, restaurants, shops and nightclubs. Now, with the world’s second-largest performing arts center and Daniel Libeskind’s addition to the Denver Art Museum, the Mile High City continues to ascend in stature among American cities.

Chicago is an industrial center. Such is not the case in Denver, and this calls for a higher class of citizens. You are fortunate not to have strong backs and weak minds.”

-Colonel Kellog, Chicago Planning Commission

Minutes of the Denver Planning Commission, January 9, 1939.

A location as dynamic as its people.

It’s easy to attract highly skilled workers and expand your operations in Metro Denver . . .The area is a magnet for young, diverse, and well-educated workers. .. And Colorado has one of the nation's most educated populations, ranking second among the 50 states (behind Massachusetts) for percentage of residents with a bachelor's degree or higher.

-Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, 2010


Since its Wild West beginnings, Denver has attracted all kinds of people . . . With a population that is 40% Hispanic and 10% African American, Denver is a dynamic city of diverse cultures, rewarding those who visit with a montage of sights, sounds, smells, and flavors

You just keep reading in the paper how many people are getting killed . . . It's all these illegals driving around with no identification. . . Denver is the mecca of all these problems . . . which I think clearly is a sanctuary city, all they're getting is a small court fine and are allowed to walk out the door. If they don't give police an ID, no one can prove they're an illegal alien. So these people get off the hook. It's unfair!

“I’ve never been in a city where appreciable numbers of Negro people live and found such indifference in relation to the matter of racial discrimination and segregation.”

- Gunnar Myrdal as quoted in Earl Mann, “So They Say: Casey and the News,” Colorado Statesman, February 2, 1946.

“Fair play reigns” and “the color line does not exist” in Denver.

-Isaac Jones, Baltimore Afro-American (1952)

“It is, I think, right to suppose that the primary reason for the easy passage of the Poundstone Amendment was the suburbs fear of busing. If, in other words, there is to be a ghetto, and busing is to relieve the pressures and injustice of the ghetto, let it all be within the City and County—and school district—of Denver.”
