NM Black Leadership Council Presents: Asante Awards Barrier Breakers

Sunday, February 21, 2021
from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Asante calls for us to give thanks. This year’s Asante Awards: Barrier Breakers does just that by thanking and honoring important firsts in the New Mexico Black Community. Join us as we recognize the barrier breakers who bring us closer to realizing America’s promise of liberty and justice for all.

The New Mexico Black History Festival (now a program of the New Mexico Black Leadership Council) launched the Asante awards in 2015 where the Powdrell family was recognized for having the first Black-owned restaurant in New Mexico. At that time, the recognition was for Blacks in the hospitality industry and the Powdrells have been undisputed leaders in this and other arenas in New Mexico.
