Lobo Living Room: Come on in!
We present to you the classics – our most popular and beloved Lobo Living Rooms – brought to you by the UNM Alumni Association and our Lobo Love campaign.
The Lobo Living Room features notable UNM alumni discussing, demonstrating or performing in their areas of expertise, and we're pleased to highlight some crowd favorites during this time of social distancing. We may not be able to physically gather right now, but we are all together in spirit – a united Lobo Pack.
Actor, artist and a tireless advocate for Albuquerque’s creative community, Hakim Bellamy has been a phenomenon in the Albuquerque arts and culture scene for years. You may recognize his unique voice from UNM's commercial aired during the Super Bowl, "State of Minds."
In this installation of Lobo Living Room, originally recorded in 2018, Hakim talks about his inspirations, his motivations and how he got to where he is today. Albuquerque’s first Poet Laureate, Hakim is one of the state’s leading voices in the slam poetry community. He holds a master's degree in communications from The University of New Mexico, is a proud father, and the founding president of Beyond Poetry.
