NMSU to host virtual forum on diversity, justice Friday


NMSU Black Programs will host a diversity and justice forum Friday at 3 p.m. via zoom.

New Mexico State University leaders from NMSU Black Programs, Diversity Council and university administration are offering a virtual event to discuss diversity and justice in the wake of George Floyd’s death as well as others in African American communities.

The forum, taking place Friday, June 5 at 3 p.m. on zoom, will be a place for viewers to learn about the grief, uncertainty and misunderstandings many communities are facing, an email to students said Thursday.

The forum will be hosted by Dr. Patrick Turner and Kimberly York- both co-directors of Black Programs at NMSU. Drs. Henrietta Pinchon and Darryl Holloman will also be in attendance of the event.

Peaceful protests and candlelight vigils have continued this week outside of Thomas Branigan Memorial Library and in downtown Las Cruces. According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, they have been largely coordinated by NMSU Black Programs.
