A Black History Month tribute

Black history marks its national celebration this month. Nevertheless, we should walk in celebration of black history each and every day, and pay tribute to our vast and rich history by contributing big thoughts, passion and mindsets for the betterment of all humanity. Together with the Review-Journal newspaper, we bring this issue giving rise to a time in historic black Las Vegas when the civil rights era paved the way for African-American progress. Some trailblazing African-American pioneers are honored for their relentless dedication to make public accommodations, employment and housing an equal opportunity for all.
The historic Moulin Rouge is defined as more than a 1955 entertainment hot spot, but the birthing ground for a meeting that propelled an equal rights agreement for black people in employment with the Las Vegas Strip hotels. We introduce Tony Gladney, top Harrah’s Entertainment executive who is an example of that legacy.
We celebrate all that we are and the charge to maintain all that we are made to be. A multicultural Las Vegas, Nevada fabric warms the hearts of all who visit from our incorporated rhythmic beats.  A healthy family is the message from Dr. Carl Allen and his wife Dr. Trina Wiggins. Yes, the tide of change is here and we welcome you to see YOU in this issue of Black Image.

God bless,
