Annotation Hispanic leader Richard Castro wasn't above a good street fight. Denver police beat him bloody during a 1960s confrontation, and political rivals later shot him and bombed his home. But he emerged from the early struggles of Denver's Hispanic movement--el Movimiento--to become one of Colorado's most important political figures. During his ten years as a state representative and, later, as a key ally of Denver mayor, Federico Pena, Castro personified the Hispanic community's newfound political power.
