About the symposium
The “Los Seis de Boulder, Race, and Memory” virtual symposium aims to center the Los Seis de Boulder bombings of May 1974, during which 6 Chicanx students and activists affiliated with CU were killed, in academic discourse and to continue to foster engaged dialogue on campus about the legacy of this event.

The symposium is co-sponsored by CU Boulder’s University Libraries, American Music Research Center, Center for Humanities & the Arts, Ethnic Studies Department, History Department, School of Education, Latino History Project, and UMAS y MECHA, with additional support from the University of Colorado President’s Fund for the Humanities.
