What’s the next BIG thing you want to happen for Las Vegas’ Black community?

Paul Cooks
A Black mayor.

Scott Johnson
For us to quit having to answer this same question every year with the same responses every year.

Stephen Munford
I believe in our youth, and we need to help them have a strong self-identity. We need to form leadership think tanks to meet and
share ideas.

Peace Webb
Black-owned banks.

Lisa Mack
More opportunities for Black performing artists. I am grateful but highly disappointed that I am the only Black performing artist on the Strip with a principal role in a scripted, booked show. We definitely need more representation and overall diversity on these Strip stages.

Sheila Collins
I would like to see a greater push for more entrepreneurship, business ownership and figuring out ways to raise capital for business start-ups without depending on our government and banks.

Anthony Robinson
I would love to see an area where Blacks can achieve together, with Black professional business owners working together. We need to establish financial institutions that can assist with credit restoration and help entrepreneurs start businesses.

Angel D. Washington
The next big things I would like to become a reality is for people to come together and support each other without hesitation, but with full hearts and love (especially in business and politics). We have to stop waiting on folks to save us. We are intelligent human beings with God-given talents and gifts.

Monique Frey-Jackson
More equal opportunities for African-Americans in management — especially Human Resources.

Neicy Dixon
Same thing “they” got — but better.

LaShaun Parker
We need to address racism in the schools. Many parents want to discuss this issue at Arbor View High School. We are fired up and want to stop racism.

Melody Rosa
More Black entertainment on the Strip.

Isar King
I would like to see a Black Business Expo like we had years ago at Cashman Field.

Curtis E. Bryant
A Black business coalition that purchases property outright to develop its own commercial finance and business district.
