I guess this is the last of this year’s free talks in the New Mexico Centennial Speaker & Living History Series at the KiMo Theatre, seeing as the Centennial is just about over.  But hey, it’s a very pertinent subject to wrap up the year!

Tom Chávez presents New Mexico: 100 Years of Statehood at the KiMo Theatre on Wednesday December 12, 2012, at 7 pm, and admission is free.

Historian Chávez looks at the past and the present, the old and new, the traditional and the less traditional aspects of our 100 years of statehood in New Mexico. That includes the multicultural influences that have shaped and defined our unique and absolutely wonderful state.

Dr. Chávez has a Ph.D. in history from UNM, and is the author of eight books of history with three more on the way. (Does the man ever sleep?) He was formerly the director of the Palace of the Governors State History Museum and the Executive Director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

The presentation is followed by a meet and greet with the speaker and free gourmet coffee and herbal teas.

This is the closing talk in the New Mexico Centennial Living History Series and doors open at the KiMo at 6:30 pm.

  • When:  Wednesday December 12, 2012
  • Time: 7 pm
  • Where:  KiMo Theatre
  • Price: Admission is free!
