“Local Policing in the late 1960s”


From: Oct 12, 2017 12:00 pm
To: Oct 12, 2017 01:00 pm
 
“Local Policing in the late 1960s”, a community panel discussion, will be held in the Silver City Museum Annex, 302 West Broadway, Silver City, NM, Thursday, October 12, 2017, noon to 1:00 PM.

Do you remember when the fire department would ring the curfew bell? Do you remember staying out later than curfew? Whatever your memories, come join the Silver City Museum for a discussion of the history of “Local policing in the late 1960s.” The fourth of five panel discussions will discuss policing and crime. The panel will be lead by Carmen Vendelin, director, and will include retired Police Chief Thomas Ryan, retired Officer Ernest Gomez, and life-long resident Bobbie Neal-Little.

To celebrate the Silver City Museum's 50th Anniversary, the Museum is featuring a historical exhibition that not only focuses on the Museum's history, but more broadly on the time and place of its founding. Members of the community will be the experts and audience members are encouraged to share their own stories. This will be an opportunity to include more stories and points of view; to engage and be part of the larger conversation. These events are free and open to the public, though a $5 donation is suggested.

The exhibition 50 Years Ago in Silver City, the digital storytelling listening event, and the series of community panels are supported in part by a grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council.
