NEW DAY – How the 2020 election put Nevada’s political diversity on display for the nation.

There was a time when Las Vegas was known as the “Mississippi of the West,” a reputation owed to pervasive racial discrimination in housing, employment, and education during most of the 20th century.

The November elections cemented the reality that our state is in a new era of inclusion: Nevada helped catapult Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House, and local and statewide candidates of color made history up and down the ballot.

Las Vegas Black Image Magazine celebrates and congratulates some of the political leaders of color who prevailed in 2020.
