Opening Reception: Racism and Discrimination at the Lafayette Swimming Pool
The Museum of Boulder is excited to announce a new pop-up exhibit by the Lafayette Arts & Cultural Resources Department titled Racism and Discrimination at the Lafayette Swimming Pool ~ 1934. This is a historical exhibit examining the events in Lafayette, Colorado from the 1930’s, when the first Lafayette Swimming Pool was built and then shuttered. The exhibit, which features extensive research and photographs, highlights the brave efforts of Latina Rose Lueras, who fought for civil rights and justice in Lafayette in the 1930’s. The exhibit won the 2021 Caroline Bancroft Award from History Colorado.
