Albuquerque— Today — The New Mexico Black Lawyers Association stands in unity with Dr. Charles Becknell, Jr. and the Africana Studies program at the University of New Mexico. We strongly condemn the racist, hate-filled death threats against Dr. Charles Becknell, Jr., and his family. For 50 years, Africana Studies has been committed to racial equity and serving, and Dr. Becknell has dedicated his scholarship, teaching, and service to the advancement of the Black community in New Mexico. The threats of a hate-crime that has a long and disturbing history in the United States were made to invoke fear and disunity. Since the 1890s, anti-lynching advocate Ida B. Wells-Barnett showed how lynching was used as a means to terrorize and control Black people.
