NM Black “Thought” Expo

Black “Thought” Expo 

Since 2003, the Office of African American Affairs has held the NM Black Expo to do just this.  The NM Black Expo celebrates the history, culture, experiences, and actions of our community.  A day focused on building our capacity and making a space for the thoughts and actions important to us. 

This year, while we continue to stay safe from the pandemic, the NM Black Expo will move virtual—the NM Black “Thought” Expo.  We will provide multiple, virtual events during May and June.  These events will highlight our Black businesses, organizations, and successes.  And we will hear from national speakers and community leaders about the issues that are important to improving the lives of NM African Americans.
