Ever wonder why there are so few Black people living in your community?

Boulder, Colorado, prides itself on being beautiful, welcoming, and inclusive. However, in 2019, racially-charged and dangerous policing involving a Black university student made national news. This Is [Not] Who We Are explores the gap between Boulder’s self-image and the more complex lived experiences—both historical and contemporary—of its Black citizens."
