Black Cultural Conference

Host: UNM African American Student Services
Theme:  The Revolution Will Not Be #Hashtagged


 Keynote Luncheon Speaker: John Carlos

There will be multiple tracks available for participants to engage in: social justice, leadership, professional development/higher education, and health. The aim of all presentations and discussions is to foster connections, create growth and engender action within black millennial communities.

The keynote luncheon will feature Dr. John Carlos, a man who made world history during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico when he took to the international stage during the medal ceremony and made a speechless statement, heard and seen worldwide. Dr. Carlos remains actively involved with global and community movements and is a productive example of how millennials can build on (and expand) the legacies left to them by generations past. We will also be recognizing the 50 year anniversary of the UNM Black Student Union charter and will have members from the first BSU present during the conference and interacting with our students and community.

This event will be full of inspiring, thought-provoking discussion and we hope that you'll be able to join us. We are currently seeking sponsorship to support the conference and look forward to recognizing your organization for its generous contribution and participation. There are several sponsorship options for your organization we hope you will consider:

Key Note Lunch Sponsors

Adam and I found that there were not many resources to help guide Christian singles on how to court to be married, so they went to the world for help finding a husband or wife. We’ve created a step-by-step guide for Christian courting. This guide helps Christian singles have confidence in who God created them to be, their value, knowing their intentions for courting, creating their expectations for a husband or wife, building boundaries for emotional strength and ending a courtship. By using these guides you will have a Godly foundation to court to be marriage.

Wings For L.I.F.E. – Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education, is an empowerment program that provides life-skills, education, training, and support for family members/caregivers of prisoners (returning citizens) and at-risk youth. Some of the educational topics that are addressed include single parenting, finances – how to stretch a dollar, discipline, acceptance issues, prison visits, feeding a family, substance abuse and signs, reintegration and reunification issues, legal issues, public defenders, work/job issues, holidays, and anything else of interest to the group. Search Institute’s® 40 Developmental Assets® are incorporated into the training. 

In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison face even more challenges.

Everyone is welcome at our FREE meetings. There is a Pre-K and After-dinner Tutoring Program for the children.

If you’d like to know more about Wings we are offering a Volunteer Training session on Jan. 30, Monday night, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at 2015 Wyoming Blvd NE Suite J. Please RSVP so we have enough chairs. THANKS!
