  1. Segments from two speeches in 'Breaking Away,' at the Tivoli Turnhalle on Auraria Campus in Denver, performed by students from Denver School of Arts. 'Breaking Away' dramatizes the 1908 meeting of the National Negro Anti-Taft League four weeks after the Democratic National Convention. The NNATL sought to throw their support behind William Jennings Bryan and the Democratic Party, a break from African Americans' historic ties to the Republican Party since emancipation.

    Taft, then president Roosevelt's secretary of war, issued a mass dishonorable discharge of members of the African American 25th cavalry. Members had been blamed for the killing of a white woman and shooting of a law enforcement official in Brownsville, TX in 1905. Contemporary and future investigations had upheld their innocence.

  3. This is my favorite Denver park. Its always active, beautiful, and water based. The confluence of Cherry Creek and the Platte river allows for rapids often used for kayaking (unfortunately missing from this footage). There is also a nice system of pedestrian and bike bridges that run along the platte, the creek, and over the park itself.

  4. Walking through City Floral's endless greenhouse rooms is like visiting another world. A local institution since 1911, the people here are really passionate if not obsessive about plant life. It's a place where older ladies and city hipsters exchange ideas and take notes on creating there own versions on Eden. A local spot worth checking out for getting your green on.

    Open year round. Located at 1440 Kearney 303.399.1177
