Zipporah Hammond First Black Graduate University of Colorado Nursing School

So often when we write about the residents of Riverside it is because of their contributions to early Colorado history, Zipporah Hammond is the exception to that trend. Up until her death in 2011 she was working as a volunteer at the Denver Public Library’s Western History Department. She spent countless hours cataloging and organizing vast amounts of information pertaining to Denver’s black history.
