Importing parts colors in an assembly

Here is a true newbie question. When creating an assembly out of several parts I am unable to display the part colors. Everything takes on the appearance of the top level part which happens to be a dark grey molded plastic case. As you might imagine the assembly is not very exciting looking. I am positive I am missing one check-box somewhere, but I have clicked on just about anything having to do with document level or component level properties without any change.

I have been through all of the tutorials and my two Solidworks books, but none of these resources has any info on this.
