New Mexico Black History Organizing Committee
The NMBHOC’s mission is to preserve the rich cultural heritage that African Americans have made to the state of NM and the US. We work year round to build coalitions, leverage resources and create programming in the black community in New Mexico. We produce an annual slate of arts-based community development events that cover six focus areas: Arts and Culture, Economic Development, Education, Small Business Promotion, Positive Youth Development and Health. Our current major goals are to expand our programs in the areas of positive youth development and strengthening a number of emerging community coalitions (such as the NM Black Mental Health Coalition, and others).
