African Americans have played an integral role in the development of Las Vegas. It is a rich story of painful challenges and hard-earned triumphs. This panel will discuss the highs and lows of the African-American experience in Las Vegas and will also explore the HUNDRED (Historic Urban Neighborhood Design Redevelopment) Plan, the city initiative to redevelop the historic West Las Vegas neighborhood.

This program will be held in the Museum’s Historic Courtroom. Due to limited capacity for in-person attendance, reservations are required.
