UNM kicks off Black History Month

Events planned for Black History Month

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – With February around the corner, the University of New Mexico is gearing up for an event that has been around for three decades.

On Saturday, Jan. 31, the African Studies Program, in partnership with the African American Student Services Program, is kicking off the 30th annual Black History Month Brunch. Roslyn M. Brock, an emerging black voice for the 21st century, will speak.

Brock is Chairman for the National Board of Directors for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She made history five years ago when she as unanimously elected as NAACP’s 14th Chairman, the youngest person and fourth woman to hold this title.

The brunch will begin at 11 a.m. in the Student Union Ballroom A, B, and C. This brunch will last until 1 p.m.

Tickets are available for $35.

For table sales and sponsorship, email Dr. Robert Jefferson.
