Stories of Solidarity: The Japanese Americans in Five Points Walking Tour

August 24 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm MDT

2528 Walnut St, Denver, CO 80205

Come join the DEI committee in Stories of Solidarity: The Japanese Americans in Five Points Walking Tour. In the wake of WWII during the 1940’s, following the closing of America’s incarceration camps, the area surrounding and within the historic Five Points neighborhood in Denver, Colorado saw a surge of Japanese-American culture and business in the “Larimer Corridor” downtown. Japanese businesses were concentrated during this time in the Five Points area due to oppressive redlining which did not allow them to open in other parts of the city. Japanese arrivals joined other communities of color who also inhabited and owned businesses in this stretch of neighborhood. Today, we remember this vibrant and cross-cultural neighborhood through the voices of lived experiences- and we celebrate the Japanese Americans and Five Points residents who are creating history for future generations in Denver’s Five Points. The tour is going to end at The Redline 2350 Arapahoe St- with Courtney’s talk.
