Mr. Reggie, Denver

Mr. Reggie outside a historical building in Detroit, 2023

Meet Mr. Reggie, a very kind gentleman who encouraged our curiosity for Denver’s historical buildings. In a fifteen minute conversation (where he set aside his cigarette to speak to us), we discovered that two generations of his family have served in the US army, and his siblings marched from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. He recalls the fear of the adults, the anticipation of the youth, and the very real violence that participants experienced. He fears our generation, forgetting history, is repeating the mistakes of the past. In parting, he urged us to be brave and wished us the very best life had to offer.
