Albuquerque Film and Music Experience
Film Screening:  Marvin Booker Was Murdered 


The film investigates how the city of Denver, and the five jail guards attempted to cover-up the death of Marvin Booker. The film, examines Marvin’s amazing life, tragic death, and subsequent civil rights trial. Filmmaker Wade Gardner, in his debut feature length documentary film, uses never before released internal affairs bureau footage to show the lengths the city of Denver went to protect the thin blue line instead of the constitutional rights of a citizen. The film’s in-depth investigation, which includes an amazing look back at his 2014 civil rights trial from the view of Counsel from both sides, is a study in what it takes for a family to overcome the grief of having a loved one killed in an excessive force incident. This will be the twelfth festival screening of the film. It will be released later in 2018. 

The screening will be held at the African American Performing Arts Center and Exhibit Hall 310 San Pedro Dr NE, on June 5 at 7pm.   Director Wade Gardner will be in attendance for a post screening Q&A.

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.

Dear friends, The University of New Mexico has a rich tradition of achievements by students and alumni over our long history. We lost of one our great alums in 2015 when Adolph Plummer passed away.

Adolph’s legacy includes incredible athletic achievements as a member of the UNM Track & Field Program. In 1961, Plummer became the NCAA Champion in the 440 and was a three-time All-American. His greatest achievement on the track occurred in May 1963 in Tempe, AZ, when he shocked future Olympic Champion Ulis Williams on his home track with a 44.9 second world record in the 440. While Adolph's athletics accolades are countless, so are the lives he touched as a long-time educator at both UNM as well as in Colorado.

A group of Adolph's friends and former teammates want to honor him in a way that will stand the test of time with a statue that will live at the UNM Track and Field Complex. We need your help to make it happen. We have a goal of raising $60,000 to build and erect the statue.

Please consider making a gift to the Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund either online through this link or via mail to:
Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund (202865)
UNM Foundation
700 Lomas Blvd. NE 
Two Woodward Center 
Albuquerque, NM 87102

(Make checks payable to UNM Foundation w/ Adolph Plummer in the memo line) If we are unable to reach our overall goal, there will be an alternative recognition befitting of this UNM legend. Thank you for helping recognize Adolph and his legacy.

Sincerely, Harold Bailey B.S. '69, M.A. '71, Ph.D.'75
John Cordova B.S. '61
Larry Ryan Vice President for University Development UNM Foundation

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!
