Curtis Oral History Project
Curtis Park is one of Denver’s oldest and fastest changing neighborhoods. In the light of all these changes, long-time resident Julie Rubsam launched a project to record the history of the neighborhood as told by it’s inhabitants. Julie invited her friends and neighbors to share their memories of the neighborhood in a series of candid and informal interviews.
These conversations have been recorded and are now available to listen for free on the Amped website. Topics covered in the interviews include the Chicano movement in Denver, gentrification, community, and a surprising amount of discussion on the local pool. Join Julie and her guests as they figure out what it means to be a part of historical Colorado.
