The program consists of a multimedia presentation that includes documentary film clips, conversational audio, and music excerpts, and is followed by a Q & A with Dr. Pascal Bokar Thiam. Dr. Thiam, who is with the Performing Arts & Social Justice Department of the University of San Francisco, lectures on the topic of Jazz and its relationship to African culture in educational institutions in the U.S. and abroad. For the Jazz, Culture & Social Justice Project, Dr. Thiam discusses the significant but often-overlooked West African cultural contributions that forever shaped American popular music through the Blues of the Mississippi Delta. Dr. Thiam's presentation is followed by a 45-minute concert with his award-winning Pascal Bokar Afro Blue Grazz Band.
This event is made possible with the support of Jazz Road, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
There is no cost to attend this event.

Buffalo Soldiers in New Mexico
Worst Revolution Ever
and some officers 'were catering to the rioters'
In 1982, four Black attorneys filled a void in the New Mexico legal community. There was no entity in place that addressed the particular needs of African American attorneys in the state.
Today, that group of four has now expanded to over 75 attorneys who hold dear to the original tenets of the organization: to conduct a program of continuing legal education for the membership; to improve the method of judicial selection and tenure; to study the needs of the State and community for legislation, and to protect the civil rights of the citizens of the community though the legal profession.Website
