CDBBB – “Asians in Colorado”

The cover of William Wei's book, "Asians in Colorado."

In this installment of Changing Denver Bit By Bit, we feature an interview Paul did with CU Boulder history professor William Wei for KGNU. It’s all about Wei’s new book “Asians in Colorado,” and excerpts of it were featured on our recent season finale, on Hop Alley.

The interview touches on Denver’s old Chinatown, but also explores how the discrimination facing Asians in Colorado morphed from Sinophobia into Japanophobia in the 20th Century. Yes, that means there is discussion of Japanese internment in concentration camps, as Wei calls them, as well as former governor Ralph Carr.
