Thanks to LatinoPundit, I see that Rocky Mountain PBS (that's Channel 6 here in Denver) is putting together a two-part historical series called "La Raza de Colorado" that will be aired this fall. The Denver Business Journal story translates that title as "The Race of Colorado," but a more accurate translation would be "The People of Colorado."
The first episode will go all the way back to the 1500s and the first Spanish settlements in the region that is now southern Colorado and northern New Mexico and go up to 1960. The second episode will trace the history of the Chicano movimiento, which of course was very strong here in Colorado. I'm looking forward to seeing again footage of the Mexican flag being raised over the state capitol during a demo back then.
It sounds like the show will stop at the end of the 1970s, and so miss all of the developments in the Chicano/Latino community here in Colorado since then.
But that's not much reason for complaint in my opinion -- the usual flaw of media portrayals of Latinos in Colorado is acting like we all got here in the last five minutes. I chalk it up to stereotyping that brown people don't live in cold places (and the related stereotype that Colorado has near-zero weather all winter). Anybody who thinks that hasn't spent a winter in Santa Fe, of course, but that's the image. Anyway, if they do a good job it will be great of Rocky Mountain PBS to help educate people about the long Chicano history here in Colorado
