New Mexico has many amazing aspects that make it unique in comparison to the rest of the U.S.  The State Office of African American Affairs wants to highlight that uniqueness through providing a platform to acknowledge the amazing aspects of New Mexico from a Black lens.


In celebrating Black History Month and our culture we are providing a 4-part series, providing you with an in-depth look at the perspectives and stories of amazing individuals and groups throughout the state.  We will be highlighting individuals of all ages and backgrounds to give you a holistic understanding of the presence of Black people in New Mexico.


There will also be trivia and giveaways leading into the event!  We look forward to you tuning in, and we will have a special event to end the month on February 28th!
