The entire month of February is dedicated to programming that highlights the history and accomplishments of African Americans in New Mexico and throughout the United States. Each event serves to engage New Mexicans through arts, culture, cuisine, health and education. Planning for the 2017 NM Black History Month Festival is underway!
