|(above) Evans Chapel was named after DU's founder John Evans|
On Friday, University of Denver Chancellor, Dr. Robert Coombe fired off an email to students, faculty and staff promising to "understand how our actions affect others, and how cartoonish depictions not only push us apart, but also reflect our limited understanding of one another."
Coombe went on, "As our community becomes more diverse, we still have work to do with regard to mutual understanding and inclusion."
Which brings us to Evans Chapel located in in the heart of DU's campus. Can DU have a Chapel named after a man who, while Governor of Colorado in 1865, was
fired ... er ... asked to resign by President Andrew Johnson for ordering and then allegedly covering-up the Sand Creek Massacre of 163 unarmed Native Americans?
