Named for the junction of five major Denver streets in 1881, Five Points became one of the city's fastest-growing neighborhoods by the 1890s. By the 1920s, the majority of residents were African American. This tour includes a few of the community's historic buildings and businesses, African American museums and cultural centers, and locations and events related to the long struggle for civil rights and racial equality.
