The 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 falls on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. The act paved the way for affirmative action and further desegregation in schools and workplaces across the country. In Denver the African American community faced harsh discrimination and violence throughout their struggle to achieve racial equality. With photos from The Denver Post archive, here is a glimpse of what it was like to be black in Denver at the time of the civil rights movement and following the signing of the act.

"The Swings," an art installation spending the first two weeks of July in tiny Green Mountain Falls, brings back those simple thrills with an adult twist. It’s as much fun as serious art gets.

The work, the centerpiece of this year’s Green Box Arts Festival, comes from the Montreal-basedDaily tous les jours. The design studio creates objects that encourage collective participation, and this piece invites you to join the band. Get your swing on, and notes start playing.
