Losing Ground" presents a compelling, disturbing portrait of a state where black and Latino residents are falling further and further behind their white counterparts. That state is Colorado.
I-News journalists analyzed six decades of reports from the U.S. Census Bureau to track the state's poverty rates, family income, high school and college graduation rates and home ownership. The analysis uncovered surprising racial and ethnic disparities. Minority gains made during the era of the civil rights movement eroded with time. Colorado evolved from a state that was by most measures more equitable than the national average in the first decades covered by the analysis to one that is less so now. Losing Ground is the culmination of 18 months of investigative reporting done by a veteran team of award-winning journalists at the I-News Network, the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS.
