Friends of History Lecture Series
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Esteban: The African Slave Who Explored America

Please join Dennis Herrick, Author; Lecturer Emeritus of Journalism, UNM, for our July Friends of History lecture series event.

When Pueblo Indians say, “The first white man we saw was a black man,” they are referring to Esteban, who came to New Mexico in 1539.

Books about the history of America have ignored Esteban or belittled his importance, often using his Spanish slave nickname, Estebanico. This book gives the African Esteban full credit for his courage and his skill as a linguist and cultural intermediary, who was trusted and respected by Indians from many tribes across the continent.

Free auditorium event with limited seating-bottled water only please

Please join James Keller, writer, lecturer, and curator of the museum’s exhibit titled “The Land That Enchants Me So” for a talk on Elizabeth Garrett (1885-1947), the daughter of Sheriff Pat Garrett, of famously killed Billy the Kid.

We will look at her remarkable career and her talents as a venerated figure in New Mexico’s cultural landscape. As a part of this lecture, Keller will offer the first modern hearing of the “B-side” of that record, on which Garrett performs another of her songs, “Señorita.”
