Aaron Dixon is our 4th speaker for the «People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements,» exhibited curated by the Humans of New Mexico collective. His talk is titled «Race and Social Movements in New Mexico.» We are hosting this speaker series in collaboration with the National Hispanic Cultural Center where we will feature unique, important, and people driven speakers of diverse themes, topics, and social movements in New Mexico each month at the NHCC.

Aaron Dixon is the former captain of the Black Panther Party, Seattle Chapter. In Oakland, he worked in BPP National Headquarters for six years as an assistant to Elaine Brown and Huey P. Newton. For 25 years, he worked for gang-involved and homeless youth. In 2006, he ran for the U.S. Senate as a Green Party candidate. He has traveled Palestine with the African Heritage Delegation. Aaron Dixon is the author of My People Are Rising (2012). He travels throughout the country speaking at college campuses and community centers. Aaron is working on his next book.

— Exhibit:

Curated by Humans of New Mexico, this exhibition features photo portraits and first person stories of everyday New Mexicans and their experiences in social movements. The intent of the exhibition is to engage community in conversation about the ways social movements have shaped and defined New Mexico and the way New Mexicans have influenced social justice work beyond our state borders. There is a rich tradition of social justice initiatives in New Mexico. These serve as unique case studies promoting grass-roots, distinctive solutions based on the philosophy of people power. This exhibit is a community-wide effort to capture the complex issues that affect our communities and voice the everyday practices of resistance. Agency through testimonials is at the heart of “People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements.”

Collective members will lead an exhibit walk & introduction after our guest speaker's presentation. There will be a cash bar and appetizers.
