Colorado Experience

Pope John Paul II

Season 2 Episode 206 | 27m 19s

750,000 participants from 72 countries convened in Denver in the summer of 1993 for the World Youth Day Conference and a visit from the Pope. Organizers feared the gang activity of the notorious “ Summer of Violence” would scare away visitors, and yet for those five-and-a-half days, all violence ceased. This episode of Colorado Experiences examines this largest gathering in Colorado history.
