As part of Western New Mexico University’s celebration of Black History Month, the Black History 101 Mobile Museum will be on campus.
The Black History 101 exhibit and lecture runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 26, in Miller Library.

Black History 101 Mobile Museum Founder Khalid el-Hakim will bring 150 original artifacts representing slavery, politics, Jim Crow, science, religion, education, music, sports and civil rights. One of Black Enterprise’s 100 Men of Distinction for 2017, el-Hakim acquired this archive of memorabilia over 25 years while he traveled the nation, shopping at antique shops, flea markets, estate sales and auctions. The collection includes documents signed by Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Black History 101 exhibit and lecture runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 26, in Miller Library.

Other Black History Month events at Western New Mexico University include “Tribute to the Little Rock Nine,” a presentation by Dr. Carlos Richard of Oregon, and a free screening of “Baltimore Rising,” the documentary about Freddie Gray’s passing while in police custody.

Richard’s 45-minute presentation on the legacy of the Little Rock Nine chapter of the civil rights era occurs Monday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. in Miller Library. The documentary screening and community activism panel are set for Thursday, Feb. 22, at 6 p.m. in Light Hall Theater.

All of Western New Mexico University’s Black History Month events are sponsored by the Department of Student Life and the Black Student Union.
