WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 7 pm
Live Zoom-based online talk.


Subdivisions in Jefferson County, Colorado developed from the late 1910s to the early 1950s often had covenants that included race-based exclusionary language.  The covenants were rules that governed who and who could not own or occupy the properties.  The covenants were legal documents (now voided) that were approved by Jefferson County government officials . An example of this language is: “No persons of any race other than the Caucasian race shall use or occupy any building or any lot.”
