(DENVER, Colo., June 14, 2004) Leonard Dixon, of Joe's Shoe repair spends a quiet afternoon at his shop located on Welton Street in Denvers' historic Five Points neighborhood June 14, 2004. Dixon, who was born and raised in Denver, has worked in the shop since the 40's and has owned it for the past thirty years. The Five Points Business Association and several business owners are trying to hold onto Welton Street's rich black history by luring young black entrepreneurs into rundown storefronts that line the popular stretch. Ultimately, they hope new business will breathe life into the annual Junteenth celebration, which hasn't gotten the donations it needs to operate and organizers have decreased it from two days to one day this year.
