D program at CU Boulder. Through discussion about contested history after this session, Dr. Hunt was asked to co-moderate a forum on the disputed history of Denver Mayor and KKK member Ben Stapleton. The symposium was held in April of 2018 and was the first in a series that will help residents come to terms with the checkered past of their namesake. Professor Hunt was appointed to be the WHA Public History Committee Chair. She accepted this honor while at the conference.
