Denver Urban Spectrum has been spreading the news about people of color since 1987. Our success and longevity are credited to the many advertisers and sponsors who have supported us as we shared compelling stories with our many readers and subscribers, making it the premiere award-winning publication for Colorado’s communities of color.
In November, Denver Urban Spectrum will present stories of tribulation, courage and triumph through video, conversation, and written profiles. These colorful stories will highlight individuals who have overcome obstacles ranging from racism to adversity and tragedy.
